Cacti and Succulents: 101 


Founder of the Cactus and Succulent Society of Massachusetts, Art Scarpa will teach you the basics of care for succulents and cacti! Art will bring live plants and describe their care: including light and watering requirements, soil mixes, sources and lots more. You’ll be able to choose the right plants for you and understand the basic care of these wonderful plants. 

Art Scarpa has been growing unusual plants all his life and his hobby greenhouse is filled to the eaves with plants that reflect his diverse interests. His curiosity has taken him to many exciting places to view them in their natural habitats, such as the US south and southwest, Hawaii, Europe, Australia, South America and South Africa. Art was awarded Mass Hort's Gold Medal in 2013 and has spoken at and led workshops at garden clubs and flower shows all over the Northeast. He is a founder and past president of the Cactus & Succulent Society of Massachusetts, and is certified as a judge by the Cactus & Succulent Society of America.
