The Orchid Society of Alberta is a non-profit, registered organization founded in 1976. Our mission is to advance the hobby of orchid growing in Alberta. Our society is an affiliated member of the Canadian Orchid Congress and the American Orchid Society.
We are hobbyists of diverse backgrounds who share an interest in growing orchids. Our members include the young and old, beginners and veterans, windowsill, under lights and greenhouse growers. We have joined together to promote the hobby and share our experiences and information.
The Society meets nine times per year, normally on the forth Sunday of the month. There are no meetings in July, August and December.
Our meeting location is in the gym at Satoo School, 8515 -17 Avenue NW, Edmonton, Alberta.
Our meetings begin at 12:30 PM with the "Beginners Culture Session". Plant sales start at 1 PM in the main gym; the Plant Doctor will also be available during this time. The formal meeting begins at 2 PM. We try to have things wrapped up before 4 PM.
Guests Are Always Welcome! Please note that there is a $5.00 entry fee for guests, which is deducted from the membership fee upon joining.
