This is another great and popular EHS member benefit! This position is active from May through September.

The Open Gardens Program Lead’s Duties include:

  • Recruiting and scheduling gardens for visits on some Sundays in June, July and August

Volunteer your garden!

Each year we aim to include a broad cross-section of gardens from the greater Edmonton area in our “Open Garden” Sundays from spring to fall. Opening your garden is a great way to meet other gardeners and chat about gardening. Consider opening your garden to EHS members one Sunday this year.
