The Charlottesville Orchid Society is an educational, non-profit organization dedicated to the exchange of knowledge about orchids and their culture.  The society is affiliated with the American Orchid Society.  We have donated orchid books to the city library and maintain a Society library of books and videos for use by our members.  Membership is open to anyone.

We were unable to meet during the COVID-19 crisis, but are beginning to rebuild our membership. We are currently making plans for meeting content and participation in regional shows and festivals.

We meet on the second Sunday of the month. Meeting information and directions will be posted on this site and on our Facebook page. 

We look forward to continuing and growing our membership and programs which often include orchid authorities from around the world. There is a show table featuring  members’ plants, and a sales table of plants brought by the various speakers or by members.
