The South Florida Palm Society is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to disseminate information about and encourage interest in palms and the use of those plants.  The South Florida Palm Society uses it's funds to help support local botanical gardens, individual scientific research expeditions or projects, conservation and planting projects and educational efforts.

Next meeting: October 5, 2015, at Fairchild, 7:00 pm, program to be announced.

Typically, palm shows are held in the Spring and Fall. When the date is determined for the next show, it will be posted here. It is a great opportunity to meet with rare palm growers and buy palms and cycads which you will not find anywhere else in South Florida.



Jason Lopez to Present Program at August 3, 2015 Meeting

We are happy to announce that our featured speaker at the next general meeting of the South Florida Palm Society will be Jason Lopez, Living Collection Manager at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. His program will be "People, Plants and Places," a far-reaching photo travelogue of Jason's recent trip under the auspices of FTBG. He will take viewers from Europe to Thailand and back, putting us inside botanic gardens, plant collections, nurseries and markets along the way. The time isĀ 7:00 pm, and the location is Fairchild Tropical Gardens, Room A of the Corbin Bldg., 10901 Old Cutler Rd., Coral Gables. Meeting is open to the public. The SFPS will provide light food fare before the meeting, and, as usual, we'd be happy if you would supplement that with a potluck dish of your choosing. Following the program, there will be an auction. As usual, we'd also be very grateful to receive your donations of plant material for the auction.
