TBG Celebrates National Volunteer Week: Abdullah

In honour of National Volunteer Week, we at the Toronto Botanical Garden are delighted to be able to profile just a few of our wonderful volunteers, who are a such great support to the TBG. In fact, if we profiled one volunteer a day for 365 days, we still would not be able to thank them all.

The volunteers featured this week are representative of the quality and depth of skills and experience our volunteers bring to their various roles. We are privileged and proud to have so many terrific volunteers, and thank each and every one of them for the valued contribution they make. Quite simply, we couldn’t do it without them.

Abdullah’s educational background is in Agricultural Engineering from Tehran   University (Iran) and Oregon State University.

His experience (in Canada)  is mainly related  to the Indoor /Tropical Plants (over 25 yrs) and his favorite garden is the scented garden.

Abdullah started volunteering with the Toronto Botanical Garden in June 2009 as a Tour Guide including regularly leading many Free Tours for members of the public. He also started training as a Master Gardener in January 2010, graduating in April 2013, congratulations Abdullah!

Over the years Abdullah was involved in promoting the Civic Garden Centre (now TBG ) and Edwards Gardens by making  several TV reports for Canadian Iranian Community TV (City  TV Persian Program) in July, 2000 and promoting the TBG to these community groups at the grand opening of TBG in Sept. 16, 2006.

Abdullah has been and continues to be a great supporter of TBG, thank you so much for all that you do Abdullah.
