2024 Labor Day Sale

Put this special event on your calendar today:
Monday,  Sept. 2, 2024
9:00 am  to 1:00 pm

This is one of the Society's three big annual sales open to the public.  Admission is free.  We will be offering bargain prices on many kinds of beautiful succulent plants.  There will also be an outdoor educational program offered on the north lawn at 10:00.

The Sparkman House and Grounds

The Sparkman House The Sarasota Succulent Society is located on the grounds of an historic depression-era home, recently restored, which will be open for viewing.  With its peaceful atmosphere, the reasonable prices for plants, free admission, and the fact that this historic building and our Gardens are usually only open to the public 3 hours each week, this event is a special treat.

This mysteriously hidden rolling hills garden — with a Sarasota history dating back to the 1930's — is home to rare and exotic succulents from around the world.  During our public sales we have volunteers on hand to serve as guides and sources of information.  We look forward to sharing our unique Gardens with you.

Terms of Sales and Donations

All plants are offered at reasonable prices and all proceeds are used to maintain the Gardens and enable our educational outreach.  Purchases can be made by credit card, contactless payment systems, cash, or check.  Donations of plants, pots, volunteer time and funds are welcome at any time.  The Society is a federally registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization and our operations are staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers.
