Welcome to the The Cactus and Succulent Society of the ACT Inc



This is a friendly club which encourages the cultivation and propagation of cacti and other succulent plants in the Canberra region. We share our experiences and knowledge through our meetings, newsletters and other activities. Our members come from all parts of the ACT and surrounding communities.  Some are school students; others photographers, artists, horticulturalists, general gardeners and many others. We are all interested in growing cactus and succulents. Some of us have been growing succulents for many decades.

Meetings are on the third Sunday each month, unless special circumstances mean we've had to move the meeting. Please check our calendar of events.

Nearly all meetings start at 10:30, begin with Society business, then proceed to a mini-talk, followed by morning tea, then a longer workshop or talk. We finish at 12:30.

We're COVID-safe. 

We're using the "Check In CBR" app.

Each venue has a QR code that identifies it to the ACT Government. Please download and use the "Check In CBR" app to register your attendance.

If this is inconvenient, please ask a committee member to use CSSACT's own QR code to register your attendance. We will ask for your name, address and phone number.
