Field Trip to Evergreen Farm

Looking for that starter plant to nurse into a blue ribbon in the Show? Try Evergreen Farm. Located in San Jose, they offer a wide variety of cacti and succulents at reasonable prices.

Their address is 6784 San Felipe Road, San Jose, CA, 95135. Take Highway 101 South to the Yerba Buena Road exit. Turn east (towards the brown hills) on Yerba Buena Rd, and continue a couple of miles (up and over the first hill) to San Felipe Road. Turn right at the light. San Felipe soon narrows down to a narrow, winding, 2-lane country road. Look for the Evergreen Farm sign on the left and enter their driveway.

Due to limited parking, it is recommended that attendees carpool.
