  • A typical monthly meeting has a guest speaker from somewhere around the world. These are typically world renowned orchid experts that talk on the topic of how to grow a specific genera of orchids. They usually sell orchids at these meetings.
  • At meetings where the speaker is not selling orchids, we have a raffle of orchids from our Society’s collection.
  • We have a “Show and Tell” at our regular meetings where members bring blooming orchids and talk about how they grow them.
  • You are also invited to the Growers Group, an informal meeting at a member’s home where they will share their experience, expertise, and advice with novice growers. It is a great opportunity to learn more.
