Welcome, Visitors!

The Cactus and Succulent Society of San Jose (CSSSJ) welcomes you to our website.

The CSSSJ is a diverse group of people with a mutual interest in and fascination for cacti and other succulent plants.

Succulent plants are among the most bizarre, beautiful, and varied in the entire plant kingdom. If you share our interest in these fascinating and unique plants, or just want to learn more, we invite you to join us at our meetings and have some fun.

If you’d like to become a member, you can do so for $15 a person, or $20 a couple. See the Membership Page for additional details.

Upcoming Events

February 5th: Making simple, textured pinch pots with Vickie Jackson

12:30-2:00, Emma Prusch Farm Park

Our February program will feature club member Vickie Jackson, who will show us how to make pinch pots using a red stoneware clay, and how to add texture to the soft clay using a variety of materials. This will be a hands-on presentation, so bring an apron and some towels.

Vickie will fire them and bring them back to the March meeting. No glaze will be applied.

Although the activity will be limited to 20 participants, everyone is welcome to watch and learn from the experience. RSVP to to secure a spot. The club will cover the cost for CSSSJ members.

The meeting will take place in the Park's Meeting Hall: if you enter from the primary parking lot and stand in the Native Garden Wheel, the Meeting Hall is the slightly elevated building off to the left.
