FILL THE GREENHOUSE

GREENHOUSE SPRING HELP 2019

HELP US FILL THE GREENHOUSE and get it ready for the growing season!! 

April is a major plant moving month and Bob would appreciate any and all help he can get to reduce the dreaded strain on his back, elbows and shoulders.....and feet. This really helps support NSA Horticulture Program. Plus this is a fun opportunity to be around a bunch of plants! During plant moving and plant sale prep we have volunteer opportunities both near Mead and in Lincoln at our greenhouse on East Campus.

We will send every volunteer home with 2  3" perennial plants or 1 small tube tree after each shift (or give a coupon if the plants are not yet ready!). This coupon will not work at Spring Affair.  Only at the NSA greenhouse.

These jobs all require lifting flats of plants and small trees (up to 30 pounds), bending, and walking on uneven terrain.  Please dress for the weather, wear supportive non-slip shoes, bring gloves, water etc. Volunteers will be required to sign waivers. 

We also have a few office jobs to help with plant labels.

Age: Must be at least 16 years of age. If under 18 years a parent must be present.

We **TRY** and anticipate the dates, but sometimes weather doesn't cooperate. PLEASE watch your e-mail for updates. We ask for your phone number in the sign-up because of this.

PLEASE NOTE: PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT LOCATION YOU SIGNED UP FOR!!  We have slots at Mead, Lincoln, Omaha, Bellevue.
