Formerly Orchid Lovers Club of Spring Hill
Our May 15th meeting will feature Steve Mattana teaching us how to properly mount an orchid, and Matt Riesz showing us how to divide and re-pot an overgrown orchid. Member sales are allowed at this meeting. We will also be offering our entire library of books to attendees. There are many quality books and other items that are valuable educational resources. We would ask for a donation of $1 or $2 for each book.
Our next board meeting will be held on May 12th at 1pm.
We hope you are all staying safe and healthy, and that your orchids are making your days brighter. Please post some pictures on our Nature Coast Orchid Society Facebook group for all to enjoy! That is also a great place to find the latest news and updates about our society.
Please pass this information along to others who may not be in our e-mail chain. We will be updating our website, and social media.
Best wishes for your continued good health,
The NCOS Board of Directors
Goals of The Club.
Our aim at Nature Coast Orchid Society is to give orchid lovers an opportunity to share orchid culture and care experience, while educating and entertaining in a social and practical way. The prime objective is to acquaint our members with the diversity of orchid species and encourage the acquisition of rare and endangered varieties for preservation and enjoyment of future generations.
Monthly meetings are held at the VFW Post 8681 at 18940 Drayton Street in Spring Hill. The Post is on the corner of Drayton Street and County Line Road, on the Pasco side.
We encourage anyone in the tri-county area around Spring Hill to come and visit one of our meetings. We meet the 3rd Saturday of each month at 1:00 pm. You don't need a reservation, just show up at any meeting for a free visit. You will find the Nature Coast Orchid Society a wealth of information You may be an experienced grower or just have a curiosity about orchids, either way you will find the club to be fun, helpful, friendly and educational.
In addition to regular monthly meetings, with knowledgeable speakers, the Club sponsors tours of tri-county growers and over night travel to international shows, greenhouses and lectures. We also have a yearly orchid Festival, a Christmas Luncheon, an orchid Auction and an annual picnic.
