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, a
popular annual Valentines Show and Sale, and an elegant Holiday Party at year
The goals of our society are:
- To promote education
on all aspects of orchid culture
- To support a
scholarship at Florida Atlantic
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.
