The Boca Raton Orchid Society began in 1989 with just 27
members. Since then, the society has grown tremendously, and now boasts
a membership of over 125 members. Our subtropical climate is perfect
for growing an astounding variety of warm to intermediate orchids here
in Palm Beach County.
Each year our members enjoy several fun-filled bus safaris to local
orchid growers, an elegant Holiday Party at year end and the highlight
event is our annual Valentines Show and Sale scheduled for February
The goals of our society are:
- To promote education
on all aspects of orchid culture
- To support a scholarship
at Florida Atlantic
- To provide ongoing support for the American Orchid Society
- To share our enjoyment
of this most wonderful hobby
Congratulation to the Boca Raton Orchid Society for winning the
DASSA award from the American Orchid Society.
