The Jacksonville Orchid Society meets on the second Tuesday of each month (except in May and December) at the Garden Club of Jacksonville, 1005 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville, FL 32204. The doors open at 7 pm. There is a culture class for beginner and new growers that begins at 7 pm. The general program begins at 7:30. We have a brief business meeting, serve refreshments, listen to a presentation by an orchid expert, participate in a raffle, and look at many beautiful flowers brought in by our members. Guests and visitors are always welcome!
The August 11 meeting will be a general open discussion. Some of our more experienced members will serve on the panel of experts to answer any questions you may have. We try to do this once or twice a year depending on our speaker schedule. In the past these have sessions have been very informal, informative and fun.
Since there will be no speaker with plants to sell, we encourage our members to bring any extra plants they have that they want to sell. You may sell as a vendor or, if you prefer, you may simply put them on the Silent Auction table. In either case, 20% of the sale will be due JOS. This is a recent change approved by the Board of Directors, increasing the amount due to members selling plants at meetings. We are hopeful that this will encourage participation by members. Don’t miss this chance to pick up some different genera of orchids to add to your collection at a good price!
Items other than orchids may be offered for sale as long as they are orchid related. For example: orchids, plant hangers, potting materials or plaques qualify. Also, items with an orchid theme are also welcome such as: ceramic items, paintings, books, clothing, etc.
