The Flower Show

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

Volunteers support PHS programs and communities throughout the year, in a variety of ways: in community gardens, at public landscapes, by planting trees, and at the Flower Show, to name a few.

The best way to find out about our current volunteer offerings is by creating an account in VolunteerHub. You can sign up for current volunteer opportunities and select what you'd like to do in the future.

Questions? Contact the PHS Volunteer Team.

Join a Tree Planting

PHS invites you to participate in the planting of bare-root trees happening in the surrounding neighborhoods in the city and suburbs. If you’re interested in finding out the areas where the Tree plantings are happening and want to volunteer, visit our Tree Planting Map to join a tree planting. If you have any questions about the planting events or becoming a PHS Tree Tender, please email [email protected].
