Central Coast Cactus and Succulent Society

The Central Coast Cactus and Succulent Society is a vibrant community for cactus and succulent enthusiasts in San Luis Obispo county. We hold monthly meetings where both beginners and experienced growers gather to learn, share knowledge, and enjoy the beauty of these unique plants.

The society hosts an annual show and sale, showcasing hundreds of cacti and succulents in diverse varieties. We also offer a library of resources and hold events like plant auctions, fostering a welcoming and informative space for anyone interested in the fascinating world of cacti and succulents.

The Central Coast Cactus and Succulent Society meets on the second Sunday of every month. If you are new to the hobby, looking for advice on growing plants, and want to learn more about cacti and succulents, we’re the place! If you’re an experienced grower, looking for stimulating programs, activities, and camaraderie, we’re the place!
