Waitakere Orchid Club Inc.
The Waitakere Orchid Club was set up to encourage and facilitate the culture of and sharing of knowledge about these wonderful plants.
We have 11 Monthly Meetings (there is no meeting in January) always on the first Wednesday of the month - with a range of speakers on topics around the culture of orchids, overseas growing and new plant trends, as well as members trading table, display table, and a shared supper.
Our Two shows – The two day Spring Show in August with club displays from other clubs and formal judging of members plants also has vendors selling a wide range of orchid plants and products. And our Summer Ribbon Show in March, a smaller in-house one day show and social event for Members which also opens to the public for a portion of the day.
We also have social activities including bus trips and visits to growers.
