Volunteer Opportunities at the Thornhill Hort

Our Society, as with any non-profit organization, depends on Volunteers to achieve its goals. There are many ways our members can contribute their ideas, skills and time to ensure our Society continues to succeed and grow.


In 2023, 62 members plus associates volunteered 2506 hours at our activities, programmes and events. Your assistance and commitment are very much appreciated.


We encourage more of our members to help out this year, even if it is only for 2 or 3 hours per month. We especially need more help with our Civic Improvement (Community Beautification) activities, our Spring and Fall Plant and Rummage Sales, the Thornhill Front Garden Recognition Programme and our Garden Tour. As a Volunteer, you would be strengthening our present volunteer base and investing in your Society’s future.


Info for the Committee Chairperson(s) can be found on Page 5 of the current yearbook, and in the membership directory.


The following lists some of our volunteer opportunities:

  • Serving as a Board or a Committee Member

  • Assisting at Special Events such as our Plant and Rummage Sales, our Garden Tour, and our Members' Celebrations events
