 Visit to Williamsburg for HSA Conference

Visit to Williamsburg for HSA Conference

I recently attended and presented at the annual Herb Society of America conference, which took place this year in Colonial Williamsburg. If you haven't visited Williamsburg, Virginia, or been there recently--it is a wonderful place for a getaway or family vacation. There is lots to see and do, many gardens to walk through, it is educational and historic and there are no rides (well except for a horse and buggy)and no plastic. Things there are built out of wood and stone and brick as was done in colonial times.
