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.
Meeting ID: 813 3599 0640
Orchids 101 will take place in the greenhouse at 2pm. Charlie will lead a Q&A on any orchid topic. Bring your questions!
REMEMBER: 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 and we’ll see you in December!
