The Institute runs the gardening advice stand at the Southport Flower Show. This year celebrating its 90th anniversary and still the largest non RHS show in the country.   We run the stand to help fulfil one of the Institute’s charitable purposes – the promotion of horticulture to the general public (and because it’s a fun day out).

We are looking for volunteers to help run the stand, preferably for one full day.  Travel expenses can be claimed and there are generally enough show passes so a partner or friend can come along to the show as well. It is a brilliant test of your knowledge, answering questions from the public and learning some new things as you won’t be on the stand by yourself.

CPD Value: 8 points – full day / 4 points – half day (Category 4)
