March 2016 Meeting

Our March speaker will be Barbara Inglesius. She is a member of the South Jersey Orchid Society and has been growing orchids for 30 years. Her topic is A BRIEF HISTORY AND MYTHS OF ORCHID COLLECTING. This topic is not one usually presented at orchid societies, but one that will illuminate the fascinating history of orchid collecting in the 19th century. These were men who lived dangerous lives traveling around the world to bring back new species to Europe. Come and learn about these orchid hunters adventures.
