We greatly appreciate our volunteers!

Every year we are truly thankful for the amazing team of volunteers that help pull this event off.  Most of them have come back to help a second or even a third time.  We know that their special enthusiasm carries through and it shows how much they truly care for our community with the interactions that take place during the Seed Up.  The awesome energy in the room and positive feedback we get from our attendees each year is one of the biggest rewards that we get.  Then again, we do share seeds with the volunteers of course!!  And on top of that, all registered volunteers will get a link to the recorded replays of any classes.

THREE DAYS TO HELP!  This is a volunteer opportunity sure to have a lot of fun and satisfaction.  We are planning on holding our original version of the Seed Up on both Friday, October 27th and Saturday, October 28th. We will also need volunteers on Thursday for early set up. Volunteers qualify for free seeds.

We will be directly interacting with customers, this is an event that will help Master Gardeners looking for hours.

IMPORTANT: We will be adhering to personal safety guidelines from the CDC (regarding current communicable diseases transmission) which would be in effect at the end of October on into November.

  • Depending on CDC recommendations at that time we may require that masks be worn the entire work day (sorry no gators or scarfs).
  • Many on our team of regular staffers and volunteers are in the “at risk” category so we ask that in the two weeks before the Seed Up you re-evaluate your ability to volunteer and remove yourself from the list if you
    • a) have been tested positive for Covid-19 and/or Monkeypox and have not received a negative result since then, or
    • b) have been exposed to someone who has tested positive anytime in the 14 days prior to our event.

NOTES for our standard in-person Seed Up events:

  • You should plan on wearing comfortable shoes as it is a full day of standing and walking.  This is an indoor event on carpeted cement.
  • Master Gardeners and Master Gardener Interns can qualify for hours of volunteer service for assisting according to Master Gardener guidelines.  Please wear your proper identification.
  • Do not sign up for multiple slots during the  same “Event Help” shifts – this prevents someone else from signing up for that slot.  If you want to help in multiple areas, then use the comment box please.
  • Snacks will be provided, including water. Please bring your own reusable drink containers.
  • Volunteers do not have to purchase a ticket to the event.
  • Location is at the Phoenix Baptist Church, 5757 N Central Ave, Building B, Phoenix 85012
