HPS Fall lecture and sale
I hope several of you had a chance to attend the lecture and sale on October 6, 2007. If you enjoyed yourself please let this group know of what you liked and would like to be handled differently.
There are several groups around the country that have similar events, either just talks or talks and sales. You should check out the group nearest you.
The Mid Atlantic had a question and an answer event in conjuction with the Swarthmore fall event.
The Midwest group had a sale earlier.
The Pacific Northwest group will be having a question and answer session and who knows what at Al's Gardencenter in Sherwood, Oregon shortly.
The Minnesota group I have not heard from but they too have activities fall and spring.
I always enjoy checking out different groups. You can start your own group. Just get a group of like minded people together decide how much the dues or start up funds are required from the individuals there. HPS started with a small group with each putting a starting dues in. They had a meeting or two decided to make the group public. Put a very small mention in the paper. (This is how I found out about the group.) First public meeting gained 50+ members and the rest is history. Most areas have gardens or a person in the area that grows/collects peonies. Ask it they would give a talk. Have your local paper run a public service anouncement of the talk.
The HPS site has information on help forming a club.
