Volunteering with The Hort brings soul to the city.

When you are a Hort member we have opportunities for constructive, co-operative efforts, and for shared gardening experiences.

The Society is, by definition, a group of companions. Together, as teams of kindred spirits, we make things happen. Help run events or tackle projects! Maybe join the board, or serve on a committee? We hope to always move forward with our combined energy and initiative, to always do better. Come and see what you would like to do, and who you would like to work with.

Don’t forget about our community garden projects — a great place to volunteer if you don’t have a garden of your own!

There are many opportunities to join in the fun, and your input and ideas are a valued part of our society.

For more information about our projects and how you can participate, please email info@parkdaletorontohort.com.

There’s something for everybody; volunteer opportunities abound at The Hort. If you re not a member yet, please join us here.


The Hort newsletter arrives in member’s email inboxes the third week of the month. It's timed to arrive before our general meetings. The meetings take place on the last Monday of the month, from September to May, with the exception of December.

Members are encouraged to submit articles about things of interest to gardeners. Articles should be no longer that 1,500 word. And they should be submitted by, say, the 15th of the month.

It’s always best to send photos with your submission if they’re available.

Please send articles for inclusion in the newsletter by email to newsletter@parkdaletorontohort.com.


We love great photos! They should be of good quality, so that they don't look fuzzy in the newsletter (or on the website).

All images should be in colour unless they’re heritage files.

Please include suggested captions to identify the photos, especially if you’re sending more than one.
