April 7 Monthly Meeting

Tim Carr, Society member and AOS Associate Judge will be presenting this month’s program “Travelogue-Orchids of the Dominican Republic”. Some of our members travel around the world to visit orchid habitats in interesting locations. Tim, who also is this year’s GNTOS vice president, will be sharing pictures of his trip. Tim has been growing orchids for 7 years and spread his collection into a greenhouse in 2017! Come join us as we “travel” to the Dominican Republic.

Orchids 101 will take place in the greenhouse at 2pm with Lorna sharing tips on putting your orchids outside for the summer.
