The 20th Anniversary Urban Retreats Garden Tour, Tea and Craft Sale will be held on Saturday, June 22, 2019. Organizers are currently looking for volunteers. Available positions are below:
Garden Hosts: 4 garden hosts for each of the 14 gardens (28 morning hosts 9:45-1:00 and 28 afternoon hosts 12:45 to 4:00). It is always more difficult to fill the afternoon shift. Paired at each garden, the hosts fill the reception function: greet visitors, check tickets, answer questions but gardening knowledge not required. Hosts sit.
Plant Set Up and Sale: 2 volunteers to assist at each shift (9:00-10:30, 10:30-12:30, 12:30-2:30). An active job, moving pots of plants. Some knowledge of plants is an asset but not required.
Tea Ticket Sales: 2 volunteers to assist at each shift (10:30-12:00 and 12:00-2:00). Paired sellers greet customers, sell tickets and distribute door prize tickets and gift bags. Sellers sit at a table. This can be a busy position at times.
Tour Ticket Sales: 1 volunteer to assist at each shift (9:30-12:30 and 12:30-3:30). Paired sellers greet customers, sell tickets and answer questions. Sellers sit at a table. This can be a busy position at times.
Crafter set up and take down: 2 strong, able bodied volunteers to assist at each shift helping crafters move their wares in and out of the venue (9:00-10:30 and 2:00-3:00).
