    South Bay San Jose Plant meeting

    Hello friends,

    Me and my close friend were thinking of holding a carnivorous plants show in South San Jose area, but we are not sure of how many people in San Jose, or close to San Jose will attend. I am surveying to see if anyone is interested of attending a Carnivorous Plants show meeting in San Jose. Please let us know your take on the idea.

    Thanks for looking,

    Jeff

    Hi there, fellow neighbor!

    Have you heard of the BACPS? Each June we have a HUGE plant show, though I'll admit, it's in Oakland. Not that far, though, considering how far we gotta go to see the nearest CP nursery. And that's lucky!



    That said, maybe we can do a smaller wintertime show, to show off all our off-season beauties: ultra-highland Nepenthes, tuberous sundews, whatever wasn't in it's best form during the summer.

    We were thinking of a get together for people here in the South Bay. There's quite a number of growers who may not have the time on Saturday to make the trek all the way up north. Something local for the locals - so to speak. We fully endorse and support BACPS - of which we are members. This would supplant - pun intended - the existing show or meetings, but add to it. Allow some of the South Bay growers an opportunity to showcase their plants, and even sell some of their excess plants. I am pretty sure that I can secure a venue and it would be a significantly lesser trek for those of us who live in the area but often can't make it to the meetings. The place I'm thinking of is serviced by light rail and caltrans - it is at the terminus of the Santa Teresa light rail and has good parking facilities so whether you decide to take mass transit or drive here, it would prove less of a hardship in terms of transportation. We're thinking early spring - so sarracenias would be putting out some of their best pitchers and HL neps would be at their prime. Just putting out feelers right now. We would welcome any and all help from BACPS as well.

    I live in the South Bay, and would certainly attend. I regularly sell plants at BACPS meetings and the BACPS show. I know a few other folks in the area who would probably be pretty excited for the opportunity.

    Right now, we're trying to get a feel for the type of response. We haven't made any formal announcements yet as we're still trying to gauge how CP growers in the area feel about it. The people that we've asked have been very receptive and positive towards a south bay get-together. Right now it's pretty informal but as we continue to get feedback we will begin the process of formalizing an event if there's enough interest in it.

    Hey Brokken - I would consider driving up from LA depending on the weekend you choose. There are a number of you I haven't met yet and would welcome the chance at a meeting such as this. Just let me know if it comes to fruition...I'm interested!!
