Upcoming  Events


  Northwest Flower & Garden Show

  When:    February 7-11, 2018
                 9am-8pm (6pm on Sunday)
  Where:   Washington State Convention Center

The Flower and Garden Show is quickly approaching and we are looking for volunteers to help us spread
the word about PlantAmnesty. As a volunteer, you not only get to tell people about your favorite organization, 
but you get an all day pass to the show! 
This is a great opportunity to learn more about what is going on in the plant world, smell the flowers and hear
interesting speakers from near and far.
We are looking to fill the booth Wednesday, February 7 - Sunday, February 11 at the following times:
9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
12 p.m. - 3 p.m.
3 p.m. - 6 p.m. 
6 p.m. - 8 p.m. (this shift is not available on Sunday, but we will need help taking the booth down 
if you would like to volunteer for that).
The best time slots are going quickly, so let us know ASAP if you would like to be a part of another great 
year at the Flower and Garden Show with PlantAmnesty!
