Since the first meeting of the Society in the 1930s, several thousand different species of plants have been shown and discussed. Sharing personal horticultural experiences in the San Francisco Bay Area we consider to be the ‘bedrock’ of CalHort. During our Monthly Meetings, after various announcements, this is our first order of business.
Cuttings or potted plants are brought to a meeting and placed on the plant display tables in front of the auditorium (it is helpful if they are labeled), and, as attendees assemble, there is a chance for them to view the displays. At the appropriate time, members are asked to come to the front and tell the group about what they brought in to share. Comments and questions from the audience are welcome and encouraged. Experiences in the diverse micro-climates of the SF Bay Area are discussed.
In the past, the names and descriptions of these plants were published in a newsletter, and, during a period of time, placed on a former version of this web site. We are working to bring that information onto this new web site – look for updates as this process continues. To assist this effort, we ask that each presenter provide information on the linked form (which can be filled in by hand or using the ‘fill and sign’ function of your Adobe Acrobat reader).
