Studio Arts Workshop
Sunday, April 19, 2020 - 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET
Orchids are perennial herbs that are native to nearly everywhere on Earth, including temperate or colder climates. Join an orchid-care expert for a fun, informative afternoon about America’s favorite household plant.
The class discusses the native orchids that grow in the northeastern United States, where to find them in nature, and how to grow hardy orchids in your backyard. In a hands-on activity, participants re-pot a native orchid into a container suitable for growth.
They may also bring in orchids from their own collections for a question-and-answer session with the instructor, during which light refreshments are served.
All supplies provided.
Instructor: Barbara Schmidt
One 2-hour session
