August Program
The Klein Karoo - A Succulent Wonderland”
presented by Buck Hemenway

Buck Hemenway and his wife Yvonne are enthusiastic growers of succulent plants. Their one time hobby has turned in to the Prickly Palace nursery, which supplies cacti and succulents to the retail nursery trade. Buck is Past President of the San Gabriel Valley C&SS and Gates Cactus & Succulent Society, and currently serves on the board of Cactus & Succulent Society of America. Both are “Northern” people. Yvonne is Canadian and Buck was born and raised in Portland.

They have traveled to Southern Africa on four separate occasions, recently visiting southwest Namibia as well as the Karoos in South Africa. They have a continuing love affair with South Africa and have purchased property there with the intent to move to the Little Karoo. The talk is titled “The Klein Karoo, Succulent Wonderland”. It is an exploration of one of the most prolific succulent growing areas on earth. Fabulous plants and the future home of the Hemenways
