October Meeting: Thursday October 1, 7PM Garden Club Building Lorenzi Park

If you have an interest in Agave, Aloe, and plants of Peru, you are invited to attend the Cactus and Succulent Society of Southern Nevada's October 1 meeting, 7PM at the Garden Club Building at Lorenzi Park (enter off Twin Lakes). Our guest speaker from California is Kelly Griffin. Kelly is an outstanding hybridizer of Agave and Aloe. This talk should be a good one! We already use plants from Peru in our landscapes. Kelly uses plants from all over the world and develops new ones appropriate for a variety of climates. If you can't make the Thursday night meeting, Kelly will be at Plant World with others of CSSSN on Saturday, October 3 (best time to visit is probably 10AM to 3PM). I hope to see many of you there. Happy growing, Susan Kent

Cactus & Succulent Sales This Fall (2009)

There's a short "journal" listed at the top of the website about Shows & Sales.  At the moment, it contains info about a sale we're going to have at the Cashman Center (indoors) in conjunction with the 13th Annual Las Vegas Home and Super Outdoor Show.  This is an absolute first for at least a recent garden club.  We're a little different . . .not your ordinary pansies and petunias.  (Albeit these babies of Mother Nature have their place, too.)  Please check the "sales entries" often.  New information about the vendors will be posted daily.  We'll also start advertising the presence we're going to have at the College of Southern Nevada and Plant World in October!  We hope to provide lots of informative talks, plant material, and appropriate pots, too.  Hanging out with cactus club members can be loads of fun . . . we have dirty jeans, but clean hearts!  Read us often, and come join in the fun of desert gardening.  Thanks, Susan K.
