Wine and Orchids!

This fun, informal presentation delves into the origins of orchids and our endless fascination with them.

Barbara will sign copies of her book (available for purchase in the Gift Shop), and troubleshoot any orchid you wish to bring from home. Light snacks provided. Participants must be 21 or older and prepared to show proof of age. Pre-registration is required.
