In order to access the "Members Only" and the "Newsletter" tabs and information you will need to become an active SWOHS member. Active means that you are paid up to date and that we have the most current email information for you.
What Do Members Have Access to???
Once you are an active member, you will have access to the following:
full details regarding all Events - times, places, maps and any special instructions as sometimes events may include guest speakers and presentations.
access to any Contest details - how to submit and the rules - we have had photo contests and of course our annual HOTY contest.
Swap and Shop - this is a new feature that we are trying to add to our society - the basic idea is that members can email in to us with the names of hostas that they will be dividing. We will post the plant details in the "Members Only" section. We will assist in connecting both the seller or sharer, as hostas may be traded... that is up to you... Either way, names and email addresses are kept private. What a great way to meet fellow hosta lovers and grow a garden at the same time. More details to come.
Hosta Auction information - generally there has been a hosta auction at one of the events during the year. This is not an annual event as there is not always plants ready. Members and hosta retailers donate plants that are then auctioned off during a fun filled afternoon. Auctions are a great way to add to your existing hosta collection... often featuring rare and newly released hostas.
access to our "Hostaholic" - our newsletter that comes out minimum 3 times per year
access to our "Open Garden" list - members are encouraged to share their love for hostas by placing their garden on the Society's "Open Garden" list which will allow fellow members to contact you and visit your garden during times that are convenient to you. Don't be shy... we are all gardeners and we have all seen weeds. Even if you have a section of your garden that you find interesting or an extremely large hosta that everyone needs to see... your space doesn't have to be perfect, it's about sharing!!!!
