HPS/MAG Pop-Up Events 

 Pop-ups are member-sponsored events that don’t fall under the categories of our established Special Interest Groups.

They can include members and nonmembers as participants and take place throughout the year.

They cover a wide variety of interests - for example: workshops, garden tours including historical sites, and day trips.

We have a wonderful itinerary of varied activities each year that address diverse gardening topics and interests. 

Grant Recipient Tours: Join us in 2023 as we continue to celebrate their accomplishments with HPS/MAG grants - a very uplifting, joyful, and interesting experience!

Private Garden Tours: We offer many visits to our member's gardens in a small group setting. This provides an intimate view of the gardens and discussion of home garden plants and design ideas. Some of our visits are to the gardens of HPS/MAG members who are horticultural professionals and they happily share their tips with fellow gardeners.
