The New Mexico State Fair Flower Building officials have invited Sandoval Master Gardeners to participate with Albuquerque Master Gardeners in the Flower Show in the Flower Building.
Please sign up through this link : https://www.volunteersignup.org/TQ9DR
They write: ” We staff everyday with Master Gardeners only. The public likes to interact and we feel better having MG’s so that they can answer questions – we have three shifts per day. ”
We also need clerks and runners – they work with the Judges during the Judging portion.
At 3 PM we have what we call Presentations. ‘Presentations’ is a flower design competition. This year’s theme is a wedding theme -so we will be designing flowers used for a wedding – if some of your members are interested in floral design they are encouraged to enter.
After signing up on the State Fair website, https://www.volunteersignup.org/TQ9DR volunteers can pick up their entry and parking passes for the day they volunteered either:
1) September 4, from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm, at the Flower Building on the fairgrounds by entering Gate 4 off of San Pedro. September 4 is the day before the fair officially begins so there is no entry fee, but you will only be able to get in by Gate 4, from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm, tell them you are part of the Flower Building
2) After you have signed up via the State Fair website, you can pick up you State Fair entry and parking pass for the day you volunteered starting September 5, 2019 at the Albuquerque Garden Center office , from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm. The Albuquerque Garden Center is located on 10120 Lomas Blvd, Albuquerque, NM, 87112. The Secretary in the office should have you name from the sign- up sheet.
