Growing hardy succulents is the focus of a meeting of the Berkshire Chapter, North American Rock Garden Society, at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 5, at the Berkshire Botanical Garden Education Center.

The morning program features BNARGS member John Spain, author of "Growing Winter Hardy Cacti."

After lunch (bring your own) there is a plant sale of succulents from members’ gardens and from Oliver Nursery in Fairfield, Conn., and all are invited to plant a trough or other low container.

Bring your own container and potting soil.
