Procedures—Please Read

Welcome to the JC Raulston Arboretum's Friends of the Arboretum Annual Plant Distribution. The JCRA staff has worked hard to provide you with an interesting selection of plants for this year's giveaway. We hope they bring you pleasure and satisfaction. Let us know how they perform. In order to give all of our participants equal opportunity to acquire the plants they prefer, we instituted a few changes in 2006 and we'll use them again this year. Please read the following procedures below.

1. Position yourself outside of the plant giveaway blocks. When getting plants in the following steps, please remember that you are limited to only one plant of any type during the entire giveaway.

2. After the horn blows, all participants may proceed into the plant blocks and choose 3 different plants. After a few minutes, you will be asked to exit the plant blocks and to reposition yourself for the next round.

3. After all participants have returned to outside of the giveaway blocks, the horn will blow again. At this time, all participants may again return to the plant blocks and choose 3 additional different plants. After a few minutes, you will be asked to exit the plant blocks and to reposition yourself for the next round. You should now have only 6 different plants in your possession.

4. The horn will blow again, and participants may again proceed to the plant blocks and choose 3 additional different plants. After a few minutes, you will be asked to exit the plant blocks and to reposition yourself for the next round. You should now have 9 different plants.

5. The horn will blow for the fourth and final time. You may now grab as many plants as you wish at this point, remembering that you are limited to only one plant of any type. Please respect your fellow members at all times.

Most of the plants in today’s Annual Plant Distribution were grown specifically for this event at a considerable cost to the Arboretum. We ask for your consideration in making a contribution to help defray the expenses associated with this program. Donation boxes are located on the registration tables. Thank you very much.
