Many gardeners are natural storytellers, and we would love to hear from you. The typed stories will be printed and distributed at EdCon 2024. Your name will appear in the story. Understand that the stories will be proofread and might be slightly edited.

If you prefer, you can record your story as a video. Whichever you decide, the guidelines are the same.

·        Only HSA members may submit a story.

·        There is a limit of one story per member.

·        No, you don’t have to attend the conference. (We hope you do!)

·        The story must mention or feature an herb.

·        If typed, please limit your story to approximately 300 words. No photographs.

·        If recorded, limit it to approximately three minutes.
