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.
Terry will be presenting virtually through zoom; the topic of his presentation will be announced soon. Keep your eyes out for the zoom link in an upcoming email
If you have any questions regarding joining zoom meetings, a guide can be found here. In addition, feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
Due to recent surges in the delta variant, our society has decided to continue with virtual meetings for the rest of the calendar year. We will be reevaluating in 2022.
As the weather cools, we're getting ready for another orchid society season. In spite the tumultous world events, your local orchid society executive continues to plan an exciting 2021-2022 agenda. Stay tuned for upcoming plant orders and meeting details. We are excited about our new @saskorchids.com email addresses!
As always, I'm available at firstname.lastname@example.org to answer any questions you might have.
