Become a pHS Volunteer

We invite you to become involved with PHS year round. Many activities, programs and events are held throughout the growing season and especially during the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show. Your contribution of time and talent will support the PHS mission. PHS works with thousands of gardening enthusiasts who share a love of plants and sustainability, but no experience is necessary- just a willingness to learn and lend a helping hand.

Other clearances may be required based on years of residence in Pennsylvania as mandated by Pennsylvania State Law. For more information on obtaining and submitting your clearances, click here.
