Volunteer for the Woodstock Neighborhood Plant Sale

We need your help for this year’s Woodstock Neighborhood Plant Sale scheduled for Saturday, May 12th, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the Woodstock Community Center, 5905 E 43rd Ave.

Proceeds from this annual event go into the Woodstock Community Center Maintenance Fund and support volunteer efforts to provide routine maintenance for the Center, including custodial service and supplies, and some landscaping needs, a key part of an agreement with Portland Parks that keeps the Center open and available for community use.

When to Volunteer

On Friday, May 11th from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM, we need 12 to 24 volunteers for as much time as they can spare to bring plants into the Woodstock Community Center, and label, price, and sort plants into categories (herbs, ground covers, white perennials, etc.).

On Saturday, May 12th from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM, the day of the sale, we need early morning volunteers to set up display tables, carry plants outside and arrange them on tables. From 9:00 AM to the end of the sale we need people to help customers find and transport plants, and to help with plant information. From 2:00 PM on, we will need help with putting things away and cleanup.
