Pop-Up EventsThomas Mrazik-Goodly Garden

Pop ups are member sponsored events that don’t fall under the categories of our established SIGS. They can include members and nonmembers as participants and take place throughout the year. They must be scheduled with, and cleared, in advance, by the Vice President, in order to avoid conflicts with events planned by the SIG leaders, who have first dibs on dates, and with other members planning pop ups.

Additionally, 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.
