HORTLANDIA "Back to Our Roots"

The Hardy Plant Society of Oregon's Plant & Garden Art Sale


Thank you for making Hortlandia 2022 a success! 

Whether you were a shopper or a volunteer or both, we want to say a big thank you to everyone who played a part in making Hortlandia 2022 such a terrific success!  From Friday evening through Saturday afternoon, 2,100 people shopped the dozens of diverse nursery vendors and garden artists. We went “back to our roots” in Washington County where we enjoyed a brand-new facility, a new Friday night preview party, and perhaps best of all -- no long cash register lines.

To make this event possible every year, HPSO relies on you. It’s a cliché, but this event truly takes a village. We are grateful to our nursery vendors and artists, particularly for your patience as we navigated event management during Covid. We are grateful to our volunteers for your flexibility as we put together new job descriptions and work shifts, to fit our new sales format.  We are grateful to the shoppers who supported our new advance ticket registration and then found their way to our new site.  We are grateful to the dedicated members of the Hortlandia Committee who persevered through the Hortlandia in the heat dome last summer, and then went right back to work to pull off another event less than a year later. We are grateful to the HPSO staff members, all of whom joined the team in 2021, and who learned that March Madness isn’t always about basketball. 

Thank you, everyone. See you at Hortlandia 2023!
