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

July Meeting: Country Store

Country Store Barn

If you’ve been to our Country Store in the past, you know that it’s one of the most entertaining events of the season, and a great opportunity to share your bounty with your fellow members. Bring items that you think other members would enjoy. (If you have a loud voice, we would appreciate your help in calling out the numbers at each of the four tables!)

Here’s how it works:

Separate tables will be set up for each category: cacti, succulents, misc. items (books, pots, rocks, etc), and desserts. People place their donations on the corresponding table. If you bring desserts, make certain they are individually wrapped.

Tickets will be available for purchase at the price of 5 for $1: you decide how many you would like to buy. These are two-part tickets: you keep one part and put the other in a pot. Because the ticket numbers can be hard to hear, please mark the part you place in the pots via one of the following methods:

You get to choose where you want to deposit your tickets now. Whatever table that you’d like to win some items from, put tickets in the pot at that table. When the event begins, volunteers will be stationed at each table to pull a series of tickets out of the pots. Those with the winning tickets from that table get to select an item from that table. This process continues from table to table until there are no more items or time runs out.

We hope you’ll join us for this annual event.

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