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.

We welcome observers to the meeting to watch the process, and we will still have our monthly mini-show at the meeting for our members.

Andrea is the artist and entrepreneur behind A Work of Heart at 176 Race Street. She spends her time between the art retreat property in Oregon just south of Portland and her art studio here in San Jose teaching workshops in both places. The San Jose shop has a wide variety of high-quality art supplies, including the Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors we are using in this workshop.


Meetings take place at the Ethel & William Prusch Multicultural Arts Center, on the northeastern edge of the Emma Prusch Farm Park.
