Welcome to the Marin Orchid Society

We area a club of hobbyists and professionals who meet monthly and hold events. Some of our events include greenhouse tours, educational presentations, and orchid show displays. We also provide social activities such as auctions, orchid trivia, and picnics. We are a social group of orchid enthusiasts; beginners and experts are welcome.

At our meetings, we host a guest speaker and also a show and tell segment where members bring in their orchids and share growing tips. Orchid doctors are available at 6:30 PM to answer questions and provide guidance.
