Toronto Cactus & Succulent Club

Toronto, Ontario, Canada


Welcome to the Toronto Cactus and Succulent Club's web site.

To navigate through this site just click on the underlined links.

This club was the first Ontario cactus and succulent society and was formed in 1977 by a group of enthusiasts who wanted to learn more about the culture of these plants, and wished to share their knowledge and experiences with others.  Although there have been a few cactus and succulent clubs in various cities in Ontario, the only other one known to be active at this time is the Ottawa and Area Cactus & Succulent Group.

The Toronto Cactus and Succulent Club is affiliated with the Cactus & Succulent Society of America and is an associate member of the Ontario Horticultural Association.

Nine informative meetings are held each year at the Toronto Botanical Garden (formerly the Civic Garden Centre) at 777 Lawrence Avenue East, at Leslie Street, in Toronto.  These are scheduled for the third Tuesday of the month at 7:30 pm.  You are welcome to attend one of these meetings as a visitor to see if you would like to join our group.  Membership forms are available and can be filled out at the meeting if you wish, or you may download a membership form and mail it to the treasurer's address.

The club's annual Plant Show & Sale is held the first Sunday in June at Allan Gardens Conservatory, in their Learning Centre greenhouses (main entrance off Carlton Street, east of Jarvis.)  Free admission.  Wheelchair accessible.

The club has a lending library of books and journals about these fascinating plants.  Books are picked up and returned at the club meetings.

Nine newsletters (Cactus Factus) are published each year.  Each contains 6 to 8 pages of news of upcoming events, reports of the meetings and plant talk.  There is also a full-colour electronic version of this newsletter for those with e-mail access.

A selection of free cactus and other succulent seeds is available to members.

Other activities include:

The club currently has about 80 members.  Membership rates are $25.00 for a single membership or $26.00 for a family (for a 12-month period from date of joining).
