Native Plant Sale: Counting Down to April 27

With 4,000 plants, this year’s Eastside Audubon Pacific Northwest Plant Sale on Saturday, April 27, will be the biggest ever, and with your help it may be one of the most successful as well.

A variety of volunteer activities are available from now through the day of the sale, and you can make a meaningful contribution in just a short time.

Eastside Audubon Pacific Northwest Native Plant Sale, April 2012, by Mick ThompsonDuring March, sale manager Geary Britton-Simmons will need volunteers to help pot bare root plants. No green thumb required!

In April, Geary will need people to distribute yard signs and flyers.

On Thursday, April 25, you can help load up plants for transport from Geary’s nursery near Duvall to the sale site at Kirkland Children’s School.

On Friday, April 26, you can help during the afternoon and evening to arrange the plants at the school.

And on sale day, you can be a greeter, a sales assistant, a checker, a runner — or help clean up.

If you’re a baker, you can also help by making treats for the bake sale that EAS will hold alongside the plant sale.

To pick your plant sale position, please get in touch with one of Geary’s deputies: Melinda Bronsdon ( or Margaret Lie (
