Mulch Sales - Some tips

Posted on Mar 24 2019 - 10:56pm

Mulch sales are in full swing.  We are doing something a bit different this year.  Each week, we will track mulch sales.  Winners get a prize!!.  It may sound daunting to sell 3,200+ bags of mulch, but if each scout makes 2 sales a week, considering our average sale if 15 bags, we will meet our goal.  Going out into our neighborhoods is one great way to make these sales.  There is a flyer attached to help you let our community partners know who we are.  The flyer is also on this website under Files on the navigation pane to your left.
