Garden Tour Volunteer Opportunities: Photographers, Balloon Delivery, Ticket takers and After-party Staffing

Photographers Needed When: Saturday, September 8th, 1pm to 5pm We need 3 people to help photograph the event - each person will be assigned a group of gardens to visit and capture on film. If photography and urban gardens excite you, this is the volunteer opportunity for you. Hang Balloons at Participating Gardens When: Saturday, September 8th, 9 - 10:30 am Where: TBD We need 5 volunteers to hang balloons at host gardens on morning of the Garden Tour. You'll be asked to deliver balloons to four Garden Tour sites to help participants easily identify host gardens. Garden Tour Check-In When: Saturday, September 8th, two shifts: 12 - 2pm and 1:45 - 3:45 pm Where: Urban Jungle (1526 East Passyunk Avenue) We need 1 committee member and 3 volunteers for each shift to help check people in for the tour. You will be selling tickets, taking tickets, handing out Guide Books, taking Member-Owner applications, and providing informational material about the Co-op. Staff the After-Party at the Cantina When: Saturday, September 8th, 5 - 7 pm Where: Cantina Los Caballitos (1651 East Passyunk Avenue) We need 1 committee member and 1 volunteer to table at the Cantina After-Party. You will be collecting Garden Voting Ballots, tallying up votes, and providing informational material about the Co-op. Email us at [email protected] to let us know when you can help out. Thanks! Volunteering at these events is a great way to help the Co-op advance its main goal of the moment: getting to 400 members! If you are currently a member-owner, volunteering at any of these events will count toward your household’s annual 8 hour volunteer commitment. For those who haven’t become members yet but are interested in volunteering, your hours are being tracked and will be applied to your account when you join.
