The Sarasota Orchid Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to the education, appreciation and enjoyment of the many varieties of orchids. Sarasota’s beautiful tropical climate is ideal for the cultivation and enjoyment of these spectacular plants.
The regular monthly meetings of the Sarasota Orchid Society are held in the Activities Center on the beautiful grounds of Marie Selby Botanical Gardens located at 811 South Palm Avenue in Sarasota, Florida. Directional signs will point you to the meeting facility.
Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month (for exceptions please see Upcoming Events) and start promptly at 7:00 pm A free cultural class begins at 6:15 pm prior to the meeting.
Visitors and guests are welcome to attend both our cultural classes and regular meetings which generally consists of a business meeting, a member-judged “Show and Tell Table” displaying plants grown by our members, a guest speaker or hand-on presentation, and a raffle of beautiful, well-grown orchid plants.
Please join us for an enjoyable and valuable learning experience in the art and science of growing orchids!
