Some of Our Past HPS/MAG Trips & Tours

Hardy Planters love to visit gardens.  Many strong friendships have been forged as together we have navigated new terrain, customs and climates. Our able, patient and creative HPS/MAG Tour Coordinators have included, among others, Alice Johnson and Joan Schmitt, Nadeen McShane, Janice Thomas, and Sue Slim.  Below are some of our past trips.
