We are currently recruiting volunteers for:
Board of Directors
Almost any position can be available: President, Secretary, Vice President, several Directors. Each position is a two year commitment. We hold monthly board meetings at the EHS office.
Writers and bloggers needed! The website, especially the Resources section, needs new content. We need articles on the City Gardeners teams at the Muttart and the Zoo, plus general how-to articles on a variety of topics relating to gardening in the Edmonton area.
We weren’t able to hold the Garden Competition in 2017 because we didn’t have a team lead, but would like to hold it again in 2018. The job includes updating, printing, and distributing the competition booklet, recruiting and training judges, receiving entries and assigning them to judges, visiting all the entered gardens with the photographer, collating the points and notifying the entrants, ordering the plaques for the first place winners in each category, creating the PowerPoint and slide show for Awards Night, creating the certificates and printing the photographs for first, second and third place finishers in each category, and probably some other stuff. Notes and documents from previous years are on file. Several experienced judges and a photographer are also available.
