The Hardy Plant Society/Mid-Atlantic Group (HPS/MAG)
We are a not-for-profit volunteer organization for gardeners in the Mid-Atlantic region. We encourage gardeners - from beginners to professionals - to learn more about horticulture and to share their skills, knowledge, and plants with each other. Members gather throughout the year to visit gardens and nurseries in the Delaware Valley. We sponsor plant sales, trips, seminars, and lectures about plants, ecology, design, propagation, and conservation.
