March 2017 General Meeting

We'll have March general meeting at the normal date and time, Thursday March 2, 2017 at 7PM at the Nevada Garden Clubs Center.

Our speaker will be Jan Emming from Arizona.   He'll be filling us in on the apparent destruction of Joshua Trees (Yucca brevifolia) in a forest near Meadeview, Arizona to make way for some type of agricultural operation invisioned by a land developer. Jan will let us know what has been done.  What is planned. And how we may be able to effect the outcome of this project.

Our brief plant of the month may be on Lithops or perhaps Joshua trees...

Jan Emming <janemming99@outlook.com> moved the the desert nearly 20 miles outside of tiny Yucca, Arizona in 1999 to pursue the creation of a large xeric plant garden and an off-grid, sustainable lifestyle.  Despite certain setbacks, he reports it has gone reasonably well in most regards.*

February 2017 General Meeting

We'll have our first general meeting of the year at the normal date and time, Thursday February 2, 2017 at 7PM at the Nevada Garden Clubs Center.

The meeting will probably be brief as we're trying to spin up a full speaker program for the year.  Please give suggestions to: Stephanie Thomas and Victor Linsey.

Bob Middag will talk about a plant of the month: Common Jade (Crassula ovata).  

Vicki Yuen will describe her experiencee attending at the Mid-states Cactus and Succulent Conference in Denver last June.

We should have a plant raffle.  If the spirit moves you, consider contributing some light refreshments, raffle plants or cuttings.
