About the Event
Hope you can join us at the CSSA May Gathering! For those unable to attend the hall we will still be Live Streaming to the CSSA Members-Only Group and Zooming (details on how to join can be found below).
DUE TO THE POSSIBILITY OF CHANGING COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS PLEASE ENSURE YOU CHECK THIS EVENT AND EMAILS FROM CSSA BEFORE ATTENDING THE HALL.
This month is something a little different! We will feature a video presentation - Succulent Prospects
In April 2019, the UN published a Global Assessment of Biodiversity which warns of the likely extinction of thousands of species if human activity continues as in the past. We will be screening three short films presented as "Succulent Prospects", put together and kindly shared by Derek Tribble from the British Cactus and Succulent Society. All include succulents and raise issues about people and plants of direct concern to us as growers. These three South African educational films provide an opportunity for cactus and succulent growers to consider important issues threatening the future of their chosen plants.
POTM: Any caudex
