I attended my first orchid meeting thirteen years ago. Once I saw all the orchids on the plant table I was hooked. All of the varieties, colors and at times fragrances are a highlight of every meeting. But what I enjoy most are the many great people I have come to know. This is a fun group.
It all started with the purchase of my first orchid in 2002. Within a month, I had found my way to the Orchid Society of Minnesota’s monthly meeting. While I was a bit nervous at first, walking into a room filled with people I didn’t know, I needn’t have feared! The minute I was through the door, I was greeted warmly and made to feel most welcome. You could not find a more genuinely caring, friendly, fun-loving group of people. Through this Society, my knowledge and ability to successfully grow and bloom my orchids has increased but, perhaps more importantly, I have made numerous lifetime friends who share my passion for these most wonderful of all plants.
” I fell in love with orchids at the Minnesota State Fair Orchid Show and have enjoyed them ever since ! I love the fellowship of the society. I especially enjoy the challenge of growing species.”
“I really enjoy the monthly plant table. Members bring their blooming orchids to share, filling the tables in the front of the meeting room with orchids of all types and sizes. During the winter months especially, it’s a real pick-me-up.”
