Thomas Mirenda, Orchid Collection Specialist at the Smithsonian and columnist for Orchids Magazine, will be the speaker for the joint meeting with VOS October 19. The subject of the talk is Orchids of Sicily, where he visited recently. Maybe you remember him from some of our meetings in the past. Each month he writes a column titled “Tom’s Monthly Checklist” in Orchids magazine where he tells us what we should consider in the culture of our plants. He is very knowledgeable in the care of many kinds of orchids and an interesting speaker.
VOS meets at 2 pm at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden at 1800 Lakeside Ave. Richmond, VA. There will be no separate meeting for ROA in October. ROA will meet in November.
The Richmond Orchid Alliance provides seasoned and knowledgeable leadership eager to share an alternative approach to learning everything about orchids in the Greater Richmond Area.
