Volunteers help in many of our departments and play an important role in our visitors' enjoyment and understanding of our Gardens.
Opportunities to Volunteer
We encourage individuals to support our activities by becoming a volunteer. Volunteers support the work of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in many ways and play a central role in the welcome and experience of our visitors.
The main role of the volunteer is to increase the educational value, interest and enjoyment of a visit to the Garden. This includes explaining the vital role of plants in everyday life and the need to ensure better management of the world's resources.
Volunteers are involved within various areas of the Garden including Horticulture, Science Communication, Phenology, Events, Exhibitions, Herbarium and Library.
All opportunities to volunteer are advertised on this page when they arise.
