What is the Essex County Orchid Society?
The Essex County Orchid Society was formed on July 19, 2009 by a group of 19 enthusiastic orchid growers and orchid hobbyists who wished to share their knowledge with others in a fun-loving atmosphere.
Our meetings are held on the third Sunday of each month from September to May. The meetings are held at St. Stphen's Anglican Church, 5280 Howard Ave; Oldcastle, ON. The meetings start at 1:30 pm with doors open at 1:00 pm for setup and socializing.
Each regular meeting features some aspect of orchid growing. There are interesting programs on culture, blooming, displaying of orchids by members and outside speakers for the enjoyment of all. Members bring in their flowering orchids to share with fellow members where they can learn the cultural requirements of those specific orchids. We hold Raffles, have a Library, snacks and Socializing time at each meeting as well as an opportunity to buy plants from members and visiting Vendors/Speakers.
Our Society benefits include a bimonthly newsletter, an Emporium, a Summer Social, field trips to commercial orchid nurseries, exhibit plants in other local orchid shows, a library, and a Chrsitmas Party and Summer Social as well as visiting or ordering from Orchid Growers.
COME JOIN US AT OUR MEETINGS AND LEARN TO GROW BEAUTIFUL ORCHIDS IN YOUR HOME!
We are holding Virtual Meetings at the present time.
Guests, visitors and new members are always welcome!
