Contra Costa Water District Building Board Room
 1331 Concord Ave. Concord, CA

Our June Speaker is Mary Nisbet from 
California Orchids  

       Mary Nisbet is the owner of California Orchids in Bolinas and has been growing orchids since 1978. She got started at McLellans’ where she spent 3 1/2 years as a Paph grower and was exposed to commercial growing, judging, hybridizing, and many other aspects of the orchid world. 
       Next, she moved on to a shared greenhouse in Daly City, where she began boarding orchids. During that time, she drove up and down the coast for a year trying to figure out how to purchase land and build a nursery. In 1987, she discovered a decrepit old Fuchsia nursery in Bolinas that “no one on earth but me would see as a dream come true.” Mary is delighted that, with endless effort and many orchids later, she’s been able to spend her working life with the remarkable plants we know as orchids. 
       At her nursery in Bolinas, Mary has several large cork oak logs upon which she has mounted a great variety of orchids and allows them to grow as they do in the wild. If you’ve never seen them, don’t miss her next open house. As with previous speakers,       
       Mary will introduce a number of her plants and speak about how she grows them and helps them thrive.

Members can pre-order plants and Mary will bring them to our meeting:


June's plant table will be a provided by California Orchids
