The Russ O'Harra Hosta Society meets three times each year. Recent meetings have been held at the Iowa Arboretum near Madrid, the Newton Arboretum, and the Neal Smith Prairie Learning Center near Prairie City.

Spring and Fall meetings are held on Sunday afternoons. A speaker with a presentation on a garden-related topic follows a delicious potluck meal with the business meeting concluding the day.

A garden tour is held each summer. The tour is an all-day Sunday event and includes gardens featuring hosta in Central Iowa. After lunch, a hosta and companion plant auction is held as a fundraiser for the Society.
