Blue Ridge Orchid Society
The Blue Ridge Orchid Society of Virginia meets the second Sunday of each month September through June, with the exception of May, when we meet on the third Sunday. Our meetings are preceded by a pot-luck luncheon at 1:00 pm and a short business meeting at 1:30. Programs begin at 2 pm, and we typically adjourn between 3:30 and 4 pm.
Our meeting location is the Roanoke Council of Garden Clubs Headquarters, 3640 Colonial Ave, Roanoke, VA.
In April, our meeting program will feature David McAdoo, co-founder of the Native Orchid Conference. David will be talking about the orchids and carnivorous plants of the Green Swamp.
