January 2018 Meeting

Our January speaker will be Lawrence Elkin, curator of the orchid collection at Duke Farms in Sommerville, New Jersey.
Lawrence has been involved in orchids for 40 years and most recently has been at Duke Farms for the past 13 years. The orchid collection is overwhelming with an staggering number of specimen orchids all in superb condition. I am sure his talk will be historical and well as cultural. Should be an informative evening.
