Become an MSHS Volunteer
Join the MSHS team by volunteering with us. We offer a wide variety of positions to match your interests and schedule–some are one-time events, some are ongoing--and you will be supporting our mission to educate northern gardeners.
Join MSHS at the Minnesota State Fair and receive free admission the day you volunteer.
MSHS exhibits at the Fair so that we can introduce visitors to the benefits of gardening and raise funds for the Society. Almost 150 MSHS volunteers make this possible.
