Local Groups

Affiliated with the American Orchid Society, the Berks County Orchid & Plant Society was created to disseminate information concerning the culture, development, knowledge and appreciation of orchids in any manner to anyone. We feature guest speakers, slide presentations and exhibition of members' orchids at meetings.

We meet the first or second Sunday of every month at 2pm at the Ag Center. Novice and advanced growers are all welcome to attend. Membership is $20/year.

Members receive a monthly newsletter full of advice and tips on growing orchids, notice of field trips, access to a comprehensive library (free use of books for one month), availability to exhibit your plants at our monthly show table meetings as well as any society exhibits in other orchid shows and access to sales of members excess plants at reasonable prices.
