The Potomac Unit engages in several annual events each year. The plant sale is a major fund raiser for the unit where members have a great time contributing plants from our gardens and working at the plant sale. This is done in conjunction with FONA at USNA.. Two symposiums are held each year sponsored by different units in our region. Many or our members attend the Herb Society of America’s Educational Conference and Annual Meeting which is held yearly at a different location in the United States.
The Potomac Unit supports the educational mission of the United States Botanic Garden (USBG) by providing members to volunteer at USBG’s annual Garden Festivals.
