Potting Party Days

Feb. 16th, 2018 - Mar. 30th, 2018 directions 

 

NORP Potting Parties are here!

Hey NORPers!

Yes, it is that time again, when NORP shouts out to all of you for your help to pot up bare-root plant material. We would like to meet our goal of potting all our bare-root material before this April. In order to do this, I scheduled a potting party, almost, every week, as follows:

Friday, February 16th

Thursday, February 22nd

Friday, March 2nd

Thursday, March 8th

Thursday, March 22nd

Friday, March 30th

The event runs from 930am to 330pm, please show up between that time frame.

The address to the event is 6820 Barrack Circle, Tillamook OR 97141

Registration is here  

Invite your friends, your volunteers, your coworkers, your board of directors, your hamster….

If you are a NORP partner, please use this opportunity to fulfill your 18 hour volunteer commitment for the year, so that when planting season comes around next winter, you insure you receive the partner rate for plant material. If you or representatives of your organization/agency cannot make any of the potting party dates, email me personally and I’m sure that we can work out other volunteer opportunities.

If you are a Citizen Volunteer, thanks so much for being a part of the restoration of our beautiful NW Oregon Home.

We are going to have a lot of fun getting our hands covered in soil while listening to good music, having stimulating conversation, and eating delicious pizza!

A couple things to keep in mind...

Although we are undercover for the most part, there are tasks that have to be completed outside, so please bring/wear raingear! We will be working in an unheated space, so please wear many warm layers. Some volunteers like to wear a couple pairs of gardening gloves; a lighter pair of latex gloves with a heavier pair nursery gloves over them. Also, Please bring water. Pizza and other refreshments will be provided.

Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email with more logistical information.

If you are a Partner and would like to schedule a potting party day just for your volunteers, office, and/or board of directors to come, that would be much appreciated, shoot me an email!

Thanks,
