District Gatherings

HSA's District Gatherings

Along with the Society’s annual conferences, our districts organize regional gatherings. The gatherings are a more local, affordable way to connect with your fellow herb enthusiasts. They are each unique and offer wonderful learning opportunities that can include presentations, workshops, demonstrations, tours, and great food.

2019 Mid-Atlantic District Gathering

Join Us September 27 - 28 , 2019 in Hershey, PA

Everyone knows of Hershey chocolate from “Kisses to Kit-Kat Bars” and beyond! We will be sampling chocolate throughout the weekend, but we also will be concentrating on the gardens overlooking the town of Hershey – especially the Rose Garden, Children’s Garden, and Butterfly Atrium! We ask that you arrive early Friday to spend time in these gardens.
