Past Events:

February 1, 2016, Elvis Cruz presented his experiences during the 2015 Biennial Meeting of the International Palm Society in Madagascar.

Dec 7 Christmas Party - the plant auction was a phenomenal success with over 50 plants being auctioned off-  including rare cycads, palms (of course),  unusual  crotons, an aroid and even a couple of tomato plants.   Artwork was auctioned off in the silent auction.  Something for everyone.  Of course, the food was equally fantastic.  

Going once, Going Twice, Sold!!!!!!!

Jeff Searles was the SFPS volunteer auctioneer and did a terrific job.
