Next Meeting: Thursday 11th July at 7:30pm
Cordelia Head "MINIATURES: Good Things Come In Small Packages."

Cordelia Head is one of two female owners of J&L Orchids. J&L Orchids has a large selection of unusual species and miniature orchids. She has traveled extensively throughout Central and South America in search of orchids. As well as lecturing all over the world including the most recent World Orchid Conference in Malaysia. An active member of the AOS Conservation Committee, the IUCN Orchid Specialist Group and the International Orchid Committee of the WOC, she is also an AOS judge. She will be talking about miniature orchids, showing a wide range of interesting and unusual plants. Next month we will have a round robin with fellow members Bernice Lindner, Barbara Tague, and Sue Fordyce. Come learn how to mount an orchid, grow Den. cuthbertsonii in the East Bay, and arrange orchids in baskets. Participants will be able to take home their own mounted orchid. See you there.

DVOS Meetings

In addition to our talks, slide shows and culture sessions, there are other benefits to coming to our meetings.  We typically have plants for sale as shown in the upper left picture, a raffle table, typically provided by the speaker, this month it was a  table of Disas.  And finally I think we probably have the best food of all the societies in the area!
