2014 Yard, Garden Patio Show

Volunteers needed at the Yard, Garden & Patio Show

Volunteering at the YGP is a rewarding experience and is a wonderful way for OAN members to connect directly with the gardening public. There are three opportunities to volunteer: Parcel Pick-Up, Show entrance and Plant Something™ booth. By volunteering for these areas, you have access to the show the day you volunteer.

Parcel Pick-Up:

The OAN needs volunteers to help at the Parcel Pick Up area during the 2014 Yard, Garden & Patio Show, February 28-March 2, at the Oregon Convention Center. The Parcel Pick Up area is the place were show attendees can check in their purchased items to free up their hands to continue exploring the show floor. It's a fun-energetic atmosphere and you can also roam the show before or after your volunteer shift. It's a great way to experience the show for Free!
