Welcome to The Highland Park Cactus and Succulent Society!
The mission of the society is to foster, disseminate and advance the knowledge and propagation of cacti and other succulents! The society places emphasis on backyard homesteading, the cultivation of one’s own food and a conservationist and ecofriendly approach to life.
Members are encouraged to bring their own pieces to trade or sell to the group! Everyone is encouraged to bring beer, wine, food whatever just come and enjoy yourself!
The society is free to join and always will be!
Want to join? We would love to have you!

Our Rescue Program:
The Highland Park Cactus and Succulent Society works with private landowners and developers to rescue cactus and succulent plants that would be destroyed prior to development or re-development of the land.
These cactus and succulents are either replanted on distressed city property as part of the gorilla gardening project or propagated and sold at the annual plant show.
If you have a cactus or succulent that needs removal, please email:
info@HighlandparkSociety.com for more info.
