The Diablo View Orchid Society meets the second Thursday of each month at 7:15 p.m., at the Contra Costa Water District Building Board Room located at 1331 Concord Avenue, Concord, CA.
We welcome new members and guests!

What to expect at the monthly meeting.

At each meeting, we hold an orchid show and tell.   This is an opportunity to proudly show off the blooming orchids you have grown.  There is a brief explanation for each plant and how the grower cares for it.

All people who bring orchids are entered into a raffle drawing for the plant table of the month. In addition, awards are presented in various categories (beginner, intermediate and advanced grower) with the overall winners at the end of the year receiving a reward! Our awards are judged to a ‘strict standard’, pick a pretty orchid you like best.

In addition to our talks, slide shows, and culture sessions, there are other benefits to coming to our meetings. We may have plants for sale, and/or a raffle table (typically provided by the speaker).

Lastly, we probably have the best food of all the orchid societies in the area!
