Pennsylvania Bonsai Society
The Pennsylvania Bonsai Society was founded on May 3, 1963. As one of the oldest American bonsai organizations, its purpose has remained the same since it was founded. We strive to promote interest in and enjoyment of bonsai, make information available on the culture and history of bonsai, promote the collection and exhibition of bonsai, and provide interaction between bonsai fanciers. PBS is a non-profit, independent, regional organization with active members from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. Since its beginnings, we have maintained a close working relationship with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, a relationship that gave the Philadelphia area its first bonsai exhibit in 1964, and continues today with our presence at the well-known Philadelphia Flower Show.
Philadelphia Cactus & Succulent Society
The Philadelphia Cactus & Succulent Society was founded on November 15, 1942 to help Delaware Valley cactus and succulent hobbyists learn about these unusual plants in order to grow them better. For 81 years, they have held a monthly in-person meeting from September through June. Their first exhibit at the Philadelphia Flower Show was in 1956, and they have become a permanent fixture at the Flower Show in 1968. In the past few years, they have expanded their outreach via Facebook and Instagram, so growers can post photos and brag about well-grown plants, ask questions about plant problems, or ask the identity of an unknown plant.
