Drop off plants: 10 a.m. – noon | Auction: 12 – 2 p.m.
First and foremost, please remember that we are guests of the Desert Botanical Garden, and at all times we must follow the safety rules they have established.
This event is limited to 130 individual CACSS members, including volunteers. This event is not open to the public. Capacity will be monitored at all times. An email with the event registration link will be sent out the first week of October. Please do not make a reservation if you think that you might not be able to attend.
All activities will be held outdoors in Boppart Courtyard. Be prepared for the day’s weather.
You may park behind Dorrance Hall and drop off plants between 10 a.m. – noon. After dropping off plants, you need to immediately move your vehicle to the main parking lot.
All participants must be wearing their CACSS badge. A greeter will be stationed before entering Boppart Courtyard to check your name off the guest list and provide you a bid paddle. You will use this number in place of your name when placing bids during the Silent Auction. We request you bring something to write with.
All walkways past the plant tables will be one way and clearly marked. Please do not linger in front of any plants. After placing your bid, please keep moving so that others may come and look at the plants and maintain a respectable social distance. You may return to check on your bid after exiting the bidding area.
During the Live Auction, all participants must maintain a respectable social distance. There will be seating available should you want to sit and rest.
After the auction ends, please wait until our volunteers use a highlight marker to indicate the winner. You may then collect your plant and bid sheet and proceed to the cashier.
Credit/debit cards will be the preferred method of payment, however, cash and checks will be accepted.
Plant donations will be accepted. If you wish to donate plants, you can drop them off at the DBG that day and depart and not be counted in the participant total. Reach out to us on Facebook or via email and you will be contacted. There will be no free plants at this event.
