It’s HES PTA’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and we need your help! Much of the support that the PTA provides to the school all year long comes from this single event.

The 7th annual Native Plant Sale is Saturday, May 14.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT PLANTS TO VOLUNTEER! Mostly, volunteers will help customers separate the plants they want from others in the large containers they come in. Bring a pair of scissors to cut through the plastic tubs, wear clothes that can get a bit dirty, and come with a helpful smile.

We also need help with set up and clean up. Set up happens Friday evening before the sale, and involves setting up tables, hanging plant identification signs, and moving plants from the truck to the tables in the gym.

You can sign up to volunteer online for a two hour time slot. Sign up for two time slots if you can!
