Helping Hands at the Annual Plant Sale

This year the Garden was fortunate to have three great groups volunteer to help with the Annual Plant Sale: Pearson Education, PG&E and Heart in Motion. The Pearson team of eight volunteers and PG&E's 14 pairs of helping hands provided great support in our set up effort, which takes four days. The team of 34 students from the community service group Heart in Motion helped with the public sale and clean up. These great team efforts were a huge help to our volunteer plant sale team, and made this mammoth job so much more manageable!
