August 2022 Dunsmore Park Meeting
As mentioned at previous meetings, the venue we met at for the meetings prior to the Huntington meeting is not available this month. And despite a lot of behind-the-scenes efforts, we have not been able to find an alternate, so we are falling back on our old reliable standby…Dunsmore Park in La Crescenta! Of course, it’s not too late for someone to volunteer their house for a meeting, but I’m not guessing that is likely to happen.
So, it is Dunsmore Park for us this time! If there is someone who would like to present a topic, feel free to pipe up, and we’ll let people know. Failing that, we can guarantee there will be fascinating conversation regarding Carnivorous Plants and probably other topics as well. If you have some burning questions regarding cultivation, you can probably get answers at this meeting. And if you have some gaping holes in your collection you need to fill, or some extra plants you’d like to pass on to a new caretaker, this is a perfect place to do that! We encourage attendees to bring plants to display, sell and trade, so remember to bring along some dosh in case you see that plant that you just HAVE to have.
And as usual, those who care to are welcome to join us at the post-meeting breaking of bread at some local restaurant.
