Expanding community interest in gardening through educational activities.

Membership & Volunteering

Passionate gardeners are encouraged to become members of the Whatcom Horticultural Society.

Membership is open to all upon payment of the annual fee, benefits include:

  • Reduced admission to Society activities
  • Invitations to two free Members Meetings (Spring & Fall) with program, refreshments, and time to socialize
  • Invitation to the Members Only Garden Tour
  • Announcements mailed to you for all Society activities

Renew or Join

  • If you have a family or business membership you will receive two membership cards. Business member cards bear the name of the business.
  • We ask for your phone number for our in-house use to reach you for WHS business (no solicitations).
  • We have jobs for volunteers requiring as little as three or four hours total commitment. We especially need help during our annual Tour of Private Gardens.


We are an all volunteer organization, so the backbone of WHS events and programs is the volunteer spirit of its members. If you would like to be part of this group of generous gardeners and garden friends, email us at info@whatcomhortsociety.org.

The largest number of volunteers are needed during the Annual Tour of Private Gardens. You might be helping garden owners prepare for the tour, guide visitors around a garden, or help manage the flow of traffic to and from the gardens.
