We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion, education and encouragment of learning about Succulent and Bromeliad plants.

We further promote friendship with knowledge, by teaching and educating enthusiasts in the growing and caring of Succulents and Bromeliads.

Our Society holds regular monthly general meetings featuring knowledgeable guest speakers to educate, advise and share their experiences about these fascinating groups of plants and their native habitats.

Other Society activities include; shows with plant displays, plant sales, nursery visits, bus trips and field days to gardens & growers' collections.

The Society produces an informative bimonthly newsletter called the "Bromlink," which is available to all members. the Bromlink carries regular and special articles and features like the advertising of upcoming events, plant descriptions, monthly meeting topics, competition results, reports, book reviews, plant cultivation and propagation and the items for sale including plants, seeds, books and magazines.
