TBG Celebrates National Volunteer Week: Lorraine Hunter

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.

Lorraine Hunter, chair of the Trellis committee, has been a TBG volunteer for more than a decade, the first six as a member of the Board of Directors.

A freelance writer/editor by trade, Lorraine’s work has been published in Garden Making, Canadian Gardening, Woman’s Day Garden and Deck Design, The Toronto Star and on various websites.

Her volunteer work includes helping to plan and write articles for Trellis and garden profiles for the Through The Garden Gate program. She also edits the TBG Program Guide.

A newly graduated Toronto Master Gardener, Lorraine is a member of the Garden Writers Association (GWA) and is a past president of the Women’s Press Club of Toronto.

Lorraine is another volunteer who typifies the depth and breadth of professional expertise TBG is fortunate to have among its volunteers.

Thank you so much Lorraine for supporting TBG and applying your impressive skill set on our behalf.
