December 4 ORCHID AUCTION!

Our December meeting will be the 2nd auction we do each year to help raise funds for our annual Orchid Show and Sale in the Spring. Start looking over your orchids and see if there’s any you would like to donate to the auction. We depend on our members to provide items for this event. Also, we enjoy a meal together before the auction so bring some food to share and orchids to auction at 2:30pm.

Due to the auction, there will be no Orchids 101, and no raffle or table judging – if you bring orchids, we’ll try to auction them off!

PLEASE NOTE: There will be a DATE AND TIME CHANGE to our January meeting since the first Sunday in 2023 is New Year’s Day and North Haven Gardens will be closed. Instead, we’ll meet the 2nd Sunday, January 8 at noon, with Orchids 101 at 11:30am. So add this change to your 2023 calendar. This is only due to having the first Sunday on January 1. Our meetings will go back to the usual meeting date and time on every first Sunday of the month at 2:30pm in February.

November 6 meeting Borneo, Land Beneath the Wind

Mary Gerritsen, Ph.D., is an independent biotechnology consultant who has been growing orchids (mostly species) on and off for more than 30 years. She loves to see orchids growing in situ and spent nearly a month in Borneo. Mary plans and leads one or two Orchids in the Wild tours a year for the Orchid Conservation Alliance. She also is a member of the American Orchid Society, and several other orchid groups. After Mary’s talk (via Zoom), we will have our usual orchid raffle and table judging.

If you are not present at the garden center, you can still see her talk via Zoom.
