Events & Workshops

The Blue Ridge Orchid Society would love for you to join us at one of our meetings this year.  We strive to provide education through our speakers and webinars, hands on learning through our repotting workshops, and fun through our socials and dinners.  We are always excited when our local orchid grower, Mark Reinke brings his beautiful orchids for purchase during some of our meetings.
