Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PHS volunteer opportunities may be limited. We are providing updates weekly to keep our members, volunteers, and participants informed.

PHS loves volunteers! 

Volunteering at PHS is a great way to make a difference and create a positive change in the community. No previous experience is necessary – we give you the training you need. The only thing you need is your enthusiasm and love for all things gardening. Everyone makes a difference. 

Join thousands of volunteers committed to connecting people with horticulture to create beautiful, healthy and sustainable communities.  

Ready to join us? Learn more about our volunteer opportunities by creating an account in VolunteerHub. You can sign up for current volunteer events and select what you'd like to do in the future.
