Join Mark van der Woerd, a certified judge for the American Orchid Society, as he takes you on a visually stimulating adventure through the enchanting world of orchids, where he will introduce you to many popular varieties as well as some very exciting lesser known species. Mark will have many live specimens to show, as well as an outstanding slide show, and will finish off the session with a brief talk on orchid care and maintenance (specific plant diagnosis available before and after class). Come prepared to be amazed at the incredible variety and majesty of the most prolific flower on earth and be sure to visit the Greenhouse for the Orchid Day event on the same day!
