Y.D.S. December Dahlia-O-Rama
YDS will be holding a Dahlia-O-Rama at Spence Farm in Woburn. It's a fun day-long collective effort to get club tubers divided and inventoried for our member tuber sale! The sooner we can get all the tubers divided, the sooner we can hold our YDS member tuber sale, and we know all of you have been waiting for it. The YDS Dahlia-O-Rama will be held from 7AM to 7PM with a pizza ticket lunch option to keep you energized. We’d love for as many of you as can make it to come out that day and help. Spend a few hours or the whole day, really any amount of time you can volunteer will be greatly appreciated.
For those who may be new to dividing dahlias, come for one of our two dividing lessons and we will show you the ropes. There’s something for everyone to help with and plenty of tasks that need to be done that don’t require any previous experience, such as labeling, sorting, counting and packing.
RSVP: RSVP not required but strongly encouraged. Details and a link to RSVP through SignUp Genius in the club newsletter.
Not Yet a YDS Member: Sign up and join today to participate in the fun! We’ll be sure to send you the latest club newsletter and all the details for Dahlia-O-Rama.
Earn Early Access to YDS Tuber Sale
Just like last year, members who give at least six hours of volunteer time at the end of the growing season (lifting, washing, preparing, dividing club tubers) will earn Early Access for a full week to our online club tuber sale before we open it up to all members. This is a valuable club perk, and helping out on December 4th is a great way to get your volunteer hours in for Early Access. **This may be the last opportunity for members to earn Early Access for the tuber sale.
