Meeting Time and Location:

We meet on the 4th Thursday of the month at 7pm in the Cedar Room of VanDusen Botanical Garden. 3251 Oak Street, Vancouver.

Organization's Profile:

Our purpose is to learn from one another growing tips, plant names and where to find them. If cactus and succulents interest you, then the Desert Plant Society in Vancouver is the place you want to be, being the only club with the Victoria Club on the island in B.C. If you are looking for rare plants at reasonable prices or even free then we are the place you want to be. We are also a very relaxed group with members from very little knowledge to members with 40 years of growing succulents.

Special Events:

We have a show and sale in the Floral Hall in June every year, a summer picnic and a trip every two years.
