EACH MONTH THE SANTA FE CACTUS AND SUCCULENT CLUB SHARES A GREAT PROGRAM WITH MEMBERS AND GUESTS. ALL ARE WELCOME AND MEETINGS ARE FREE TO THE PUBLIC.

The club meets the 3rd Thursday every month at 6:30pm at the Christ Lutheran Church 1701 Arroyo Chamiso, Santa Fe, NM.

Our meetings begin with announcements and an informal show and tell of our Plant of the Month. 

At the meetings, we often have a donation plant raffle and give away plants to members on their second meeting attendance so it's a great place and time to pick up new specimens! Members are always welcome to bring plants to swap with one another. 

A diverse array of topics are covered in our monthly program from travelogue presentations from those who have journeyed to visit plants in their natural habitats to panel discussions on plant care and tutorials on seed starting. 

At these meetings, you will also have a great opportunity to connect with experts who can answer your cacti and succulent care questions. 

We love to have refreshments to share at our meetings, so the club rotates an alphabetical list of members to contribute refreshments each month. 

We have a Holiday Gathering in December in lieu  of  our monthly meeting. We typically have an auction and it is a general fun time to connect with one another and review the past year.
