Not just the food, but even the plants will deserve the appellation of succulent this year. To begin with there will two short videos on collectors, the first being Dr. Gerald Barad of Asclepiad, Echeveria and general succulent fame and the second, Ray Rogers, another Philly Flower show winner. Then, Zabel Meshejian will show us how she trims one of our favorite succulents – Euphorbia francoisii. Some of our holiday plant giveaways will be succulent too. Join us at our annual party and contribute to the general tastiness
Food contributions welcome.
Hanna Packer's November photo presentation, Green Walls, will be shown for the first hour informally. She will be there to answer questions.

About the Indoor Gardening Society...
IGS is a great way to introduce adults and children to the importance of green plants. The more you know about botany and growing things, the more you understand their impact on every aspect of your life and their importance to human survival. Plants beautify your home and freshen the air in it. They are determining factors in many aspects of human history and development. Plants will heighten your appreciation of the outdoors and bring it inside for you to enjoy year-round. At each of our monthly meetings members enjoy:
-a lecture or program about a horticulture-related topic
-a plant sale making rare and unusual plants available at reasonable prices
-an exhibition of spectacular specimens often unknown to people outside the plant hobbyist world and often unseen at botanical gardens.
-access to supplies and information that can turn anyone from a novice to a successful grower
