This program is about a 3 week jaunt through northern Argentina. We started at Cordoba and traveled north to the Bolivian border. Many plants were seen from the genera Gymnocalycium, Trichocereus (Echinopsis), Opuntia and Tephrocactus, to name a few.
We traveled over 15,000 foot passes to the high Altiplano desert, and also passed through seemingly tropical areas where bromeliads hung from trees - a very interesting trip.
Mark is a third generation fruit and grape farmer in the Fresno, California area. He has been interested in cacti and other succulents for over 20 years and currently is Vice President and Program Chairman for the Fresno Cactus and Succulent Society. About 10 years ago he started to produce his own pottery for his various plants. Many others admired his pottery and liked his many designs so much that he started making various pieces to sell to others.
Mark has agreed to bring a variety of his pottery pieces with him. They will be on display for anyone interested in purchasing. His pottery is superb!
Join us for this very special presentation and an extremely enjoyable evening!
