Posted 14 Apr 2018: Cactus with Obie Oberhausen

Join us Saturday, April 28th at 12:30pm for a presentation on cactus, how to grow them and what a great option they are in water poor climates.

John "Obie" has been growing cacti for about 17 years and has about 150 different times growing in his home gardens in Santa Fe. He is a member of New Mexico and Colorado Cactus societies and the cofounder of Cactus Rescue Project.

Obie's presentation, "Growing Cactus", will discuss the reasons for growing cactus, how to do it, selecting cactus, soil's and mulches, and suggest some companion plants. He'll include some great pictures of cactus and of cactus gardens, including the third largest cactus garden in the state which was planted by Cactus Rescue Project.

Event is free and open to the public. Donations gratefully accepted.

Vista Grande Public Library: 14 Avenida Torreon between the El Dorado Community School and the Adam Senior Center.
