The Saskatchewan Orchid Society (SOS) was founded in 1983 as a non-profit organization in Saskatoon, and was the Province's first orchid society. Its founders were interested in the conservation of orchid species both native and non-native to Saskatchewan. Today, we are approximately 60 members strong. At our monthly meetings, members show off blooming plants, discuss orchid culture, and participate in trade & sales. We often welcome international speakers who share their expertise as well as bring interesting orchids for sale. Join us, and learn more about growing orchids in the prairies.
Meetings start at 1:30PM and are typically held on the Saturday prior to the 4th Sunday of each month. Our society takes a brief hiatus during the months of June, July, August, and December. Occasionally, changes to meeting times occur - please check below for details.
For the first time in almost 2 years, our society is commencing in-person meetings, and what an event to open with! Our annual silent auction is a fantastic way to build your collection and help support your local society. Books, potting supplies, and of course an abundance of member-contributed orchids will be up for auction!

Apologies for the lack of updates - our website had a bit of a glitch with logging in! Who else is excited about Spring? I know watching the snow melt and the first signs of green poking out gives me much joy.
As always, I'm available at firstname.lastname@example.org to answer any questions you might have.
