Join us for our Show and Sale this march at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Day Hall and Hardin Visitor Center!
The show will run from March 10th to March 12th. There will be at least 10 individually created exhibits featuring flowering orchids at their best, including many unusual and rarely seen species and hybrids, so come and enjoy the impressive displays of blooming orchid plants that will fill Day Hall with fragrance and beauty!
This will be an AOS sanctioned show that will include award judging by the American Orchid Society as well as educational classes for anyone wishing to know more about how to grow these fascinating and beautiful plants. Each of our vendors will have a sales area offering plants for sale and plenty of free growing advice.
We can still use more volunteers. We need more people to help at the society table on Friday, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning. We can always use a little more help for setup early Wednesday afternoon and in the middle of the day (11-2) on Thursday. If anyone else is interested in helping please send a note to Jan Spenard (firstname.lastname@example.org).
