Support the Hort - Volunteers and Donations

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, use your skills and learn new ones. You will find a friendly social atmosphere at our events and will be surrounded by those who share your interest in gardening. Volunteers play an important role at RHS. There are many ways to become active, with something for every volunteer. Email to find out how you can help.

Our programs are funded by proceeds of events, plant sale, membership fees, donations and corporate sponsorships. An elected executive provides governance and support. A dedicated team of volunteers carries out the numerous activities.

RHS strives to keep our membership rates low so everyone can join and to keep our educational events affordable for the public. Educational events are free for members to attend. Help us build and an open gardening community by volunteering or donating. Contact us for more information.
