We appreciate our volunteers generously sharing their time and energy supporting St Andrews Botanic Garden. Volunteers contribute to the beauty of the garden, the success of our events and programmes, and the experience of our visitors.

If you are interested in becoming a St Andrews Botanic Garden volunteer, you should note that:

  • Volunteers lend a hand in almost all areas of St Andrews Botanic Garden — and not everyone works with plants!
  • You must be over 18 years of age in order to volunteer
  • You will receive training specific to your assignment and appreciation for your efforts
  • Volunteer opportunities are available year-round during the working week
  • After you have completed a minimum number of volunteering hours you will be issued with a complimentary annual garden membership enabling you to enjoy the garden whenever you wish
  • You will be invited to volunteer appreciation events
