The BACPS will once again have a booth at the flower show, delighting kids and enlightening parents about the wonders of the carnivorous plant world.
To pull off this amazing feat, we need YOUR help!
You, too, can help man the booth on any of the days below, for just a few hours or as many as you want, helping kids pot up their own baby Venus Fly Traps, and showing off our best bug-eating marvels. When your shift(s) is up, feel free to enjoy the always fantastic gardens and great food found just around the corner.
The show runs from Wednesday, March 24, through Sunday, the 28th, at the San Mateo convention center. Wednesday through Saturday, the booth hours are: 9:45 - 1:30, 1:00 - 5:00, and 4:30 - 8:00. Sunday the show closes early, so the last shift will end at 6:00 pm. Set-up and take-down will be on Tuesday and Monday. Don't feel overwhelmed: it's two per shift, with a half hour overlap between shifts-- plenty of help!
It's just that easy! Along with filling pots and brains, you would also be asked to mist some plants, and guard the volunteered plants, see that they return home safely. There will be a coloring area for the kids, and a sign-in sheet for prospective members.
We also need volunteer plants! This is your chance to show off that fantastic Nepenthes filling your bathroom window, your favorite terrarium, or that gargantuan Sundew gluing up any and all who dare enter your back yard. How about a pot full of mega flytraps? Post an idea here, or send me an e-mail-- all offers are welcome!
