The Monterey Bay Area Cactus and Succulent Society (MBACSS) held the second installment of its biannual cactus and succulent show and sale over the weekend in San Juan Bautista.
For the second straight year, the city’s community center served as the event’s venue.
Featuring scores of plants grown by society members or purchased wholesale from Southern California nurseries, this weekend’s event began on Saturday, Sept. 30 and concluded on Sunday, Oct. 1.
Society member and the show’s coordinator, Gary Stubblefield, explained to BenitoLink that the show and sale has taken place every April and October in San Juan for the past 27 years.
Stubblefield added that 25-percent of the proceeds from each sale go back to MBACSS, funding the non-profit’s monthly luncheons.
