2020 Boston Flower & Garden Show Mass Hort Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Massachusetts Horticultural Society at the 2020 Boston Flower & Garden Show. This year's Show, themed "Garden Party: Celebrating Friends & Family" begins on Wednesday, March 11 and runs through Sunday, March 15, 2020. It is held at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. For more details visit: https://bostonflowershow.com/

The Flower Show is Mass Hort's largest outreach opportunity of the year.We aim to inspire, educate, and connect visitors to our mission and encourage them to join our community and support our mission through membership to Mass Hort. To reach all of these people, we need your help - to set up and build our exhibits and competitions the weekend before the Show, and to help staff our exhibits at the Show. It is a fun way to see the Show behind the scenes, support our mission, and meet others that share a passion for plants.

Mass Hort's exhibit, titled  Backyard Living. In line with the 2020 show theme, the Massachusetts Horticultural Society exhibit will portray a New England backyard suitable for celebrating friends and family.Designed by Ahronian Landscaping and Design, the exhibit features an outdoor gathering area, edible plants, and beautiful horticultural plantings. Aligned with the organization’s focus on education, the exhibit illustrates design techniques that a homeowner could realistically reproduce in their own yard.

Please check out our volunteer opportunities below. Once you sign up, you will receive an email confirmation about your shift with detailed directions and instructions on where to check in, and your role, etc. Those instructions and directions are also attached below.

We hope you will join us for an awakening of the senses in the middle of March! Thank you for donating your time to support Mass Hort's mission.

If you have any questions about volunteering, please contact Julie Griffin, Mass Hort's Volunteer Engagement Manager, at [email protected] or at 617-933-4934. Email is the quickest form of communication.
