City Botanic Gardens volunteer guides

City Botanic Gardens' volunteer guides are a group of people from all walks of life. They share knowledge and enthusiasm for the plant collections and history of the gardens.

There is a volunteer guide intake every one to two years. New guides undergo a comprehensive training program.

You do not need a formal qualification in horticulture or botany to become a volunteer guide. However, good social and communication skills are important.
