We are dedicated to the growth and spread of horticultural and scientific knowledge of the Bromeliad Family (Bromeliaceae) and enthusiasm for the preservation of its species and habitats.

Next Meeting

Peter WanAnnual Garden Tour – East Bay
This month, we will not have a regular monthly meeting. Instead,
we have our annual garden tour to member’s gardens. Because
our membership is spread over the entire San Francisco area, each
year we visit a different region. This year we will go to the East
Bay and visit 4 gardens. We will start at 10:45-11:00 AM in
Fremont at Wes and Marilyn Schillings’ garden. Our second stop
will be in Hayward at the home of John Molnar and Gary Turner.
Our next stop will be in Oakland Hills at the home of Leianne
Crittenden. Our last stop is to visit the plants at the home of
Casper Curto and Daryl DuCharme.
At our final stop, Casper and Daryl will host a potluck meal, so
bring a food item that is ready to go or needs very little
preparation. There will be paper plates, napkins, and plastic
silverware provided. Bring your own serving utensils.

Addendum: The stop at John and Gary's has been canceled.
