Local society activities include garden visits and field trips to places of interest, educational tours, and special plantings of palms and cycads. An annual auction and social gathering is held each summer, and an annual public sale each autumn. Members may also take part in a wide range of international tours and activities.
The society maintains for its members a library of publications relating to palms and cycads, from which members can borrow for a small fee. The Library also provides DVDs of meetings for sale.
The society runs an annual public sale at the Auckland Botanic Gardens on Palm Sunday weekend (the weekend before Easter) each year. Many commercial growers have plants on offer, and members can use this sale to sell their own plants. For details on the next Sale click here.
