How can you help?
-Volunteer your time! – for set up, break down and working with the booth during the day.
What do you get from this?
Countless numbers of people walk by and ask questions such as “Where can I find a landscaper?” “Where’s the best place to find an arborist?” “Where do I find this plant?” It’s a great opportunity to give out your business cards and talk to prospective clients.
We’re also selling plants!
MALP members can bring your own plants to sell….20% of the sale goes to MALP. You get the rest. We’re looking for high quality, unusual, and hard to find plants.
Help us make our booth successful this year!
