Work Day Sales

You are always welcome to visit the Gardens and purchase plants during one of our "gardening workday sessions" -- which have not been suspended during the pandemic.

Please see the sidebar on this page for important information about scheduling your visit to one of our Gardening Workdays.

Easily Find Us

Sale Day and Work Day visitors now have a new sign to help them find us when approaching from the north. Thanks to our gracious and artistic neighbors to the east, Cathie Carol Zurich-Wus and her husband Mike, we now have a beautiful new sign on the north-west corner of our Gardens.

Succulent Society Signage
Signage compliments of Cathie Carol Zurich-Wus and her husband Mike.

Over the past few years, Cathie has created several beautiful hand painted signs for us — each one clearly an investment of considerable time and expense — but, happily for us, each one always without charge to the Society.

The next time you visit the Gardens take a look at the signage on the corner of Myrtle Street and Cocoanut Avenue, on the Cocoanut Ave. gate, and (now) on the corner of Cocoanut and 38th Street. Cathie painted all of them and Mike did the installations. Mike also does the carpentry to create the interesting shapes for the artwork painted along the edges.

We think the these colorful hand-made signs deliver a happy and decorative vibe perfectly in tune with the welcoming and informal style of the Gardens. Thank you Cathie and Mike!

You can learn more about Cathie, and see a sampling of her inspiring creations, here: WhimZCreations.com (scroll down to see the slide show.)

Work Day Sales

We encourage you to visit to our Gardens on one of our gardening workdays, held from 9:00 am to noon every Monday, year 'round, and on the 1st & 3rd Saturdays of every month, also from 9:00 am to noon.

Please note that these sessions are subject to cancellation, without public notice, due to weather conditions or the absence of available volunteers. Both situations are quite rare, but worth noting if you will be traveling from afar.

Before planning your trip to the Gardens, we recommend a quick visit to our Facebook "Events" Page.  Our volunteers try to keep that page up to date with current information about workdays, both planned and/or canceled.

You do not need to be a member of the Facebook community to view the one or two weeks initially visible on that page, but to view scheduling information beyond that, Facebook is likely to require a login.
