Our Next Meeting - Sept 22nd
Annual General Meeting
In addition to our Annual General Meeting, where we will be electing the Board of Directors for the 2014/15 Season, we will be welcoming Katherine Ylitalo as our guest speaker.
Katherine Ylitalo is an educator, writer, horticulturist, garden historian and museum professional who is interested in the intersection of art and gardens. She currently teaches art history at the University of Calgary, works with Bow Valley College with their display of art in public spaces and is preparing for the final installment of the 5 part Glenbow Museum series, "Made in Calgary."
Please join us at 7:00 p.m. on September 22nd at the South Calgary / Marda Loop Communities Association to hear Katherine speak as well as our usual silent auction of member plants, show table and more.
Everyone is welcome.
Join the Foothills Orchid Society for a weekend of exotic flowers from around the world. Bring your camera and take photos of the show plants. Bring your greenthumb for a chance at the sale tables. There will be vendors from around the world offering plants for sale and advice on how to grow orchids best in your home.
The 2015 Calgary Orchid Show will be held May 23rd & 24th at the Triwood Community Association. More details, including participating vendors will be available at a later date.
