Since the Friends of the Garden was founded, its devoted members have helped support activities and projects undertaken by the Montreal Botanical Garden and the Institut de recherche en biologie végétale (Plant Biology Research Institute).
Supervolunteers are members who are able to contribute a great deal of time and energy. The tasks entrusted to them require regular presence at the Garden and ongoing training.
Volunteers can also contribute precious assistance to help meet specific, short-term needs: special events, plant sales, organizational mailouts, etc.
Are you interested in getting involved too? Contact us, and we’ll be delighted to tell you how you can help!
Please note that training and mentoring for all volunteer services is offered in French only.
