The Sarasota Orchid Society is a non-profit society dedicated to the education, appreciation and enjoyment of the many varieties of orchids. The beautiful tropical climate enjoyed by people living in Sarasota is ideal for cultivation of these spectacular plants.

The regular monthly meetings of the Sarasota Orchid Society are held in the Activities Center on the grounds of the beautiful Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. The Gardens are located at 811 South Palm Avenue in Sarasota, Florida. If you need directions to Selby Gardens click here for a map. On arrival at the Gardens, directional signs will point you to the meeting facility.

Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month starting promptly at 7:00 P.M. Free cultural (Learn how to Grow Orchids) classes meet every month at 6:15 P.M.

Be sure to check the calendar below for details. Visitors are always welcome to attend our cultural classes, as well as the business meetings. Our meetings generally consist of a business meeting, a judged “Show and Tell Table” displaying plants grown by our members, a guest speaker or presentation, raffle of beautiful orchid plants, and of course, refreshments. Please join us monthly for an enjoyable and valuable learning experience in the art and science of growing orchids.
