  2017 BACPS Carnivorous Plant Show & Sale

2017 BACPS Carnivorous Plant Show & Sale

*2nd Floor Community Meeting Room: Before entering the main lobby, take the stairwell or elevator on the left, up to the 2nd floor, then make a right. There is limited parking for library patrons and staff, so we would like to encourage everyone to carpool, park on the streets, or take public transit (*Rockridge BART station is only a block away). There's also ample non-metered parking in the surrounding neighborhoods and within a pleasant stride from the library.

Summer Workshop: Plant Primp, Prune, and Preparation for ICPS Show and Sale

Join us for a plant preparation workshop and open forum. This is your chance to bring plants that you plan to enter in the BACPS show, which is scheduled for August 4 and 5 in Santa Rosa, in conjunction with the ICPS Conference. We'll have work stations set-up by prepping activity (e.g., pruning, re-potting, pest troubleshooting, etc.) to make your plants shine. Bring in your plants, pots, and soil and we'll help get your plants show ready!

Think your plants are ready to be entered into the show? We'll have a mock judging station set-up to offer tips and tricks to increase your chances of winning. Photos of past award winners will be presented as well. For those not entering plants into the show, we'll hold an open forum. Come prepared with any burning questions that you've been meaning to ask and meeting participants will try to answer them. Bring your plants to trade or sell... it's peak time for Sarracenia! Overflowing with Sarracenia or Pinguicula? Bring them in for the raffle.
