Orchid Societies
The Ramapo Orchid Society, Inc. is a nonprofit, educational organization dedicated to the love of growing orchids . We meet every month ( except July & August) at the
Flat Rock Brook Nature Center, Englewood, New Jersey.
At our meetings we feature guest speakers, hands-on workshops, and an opportunity to trade growing secrets with some very experienced members. We always have a show table, and affordably priced orchids from local vendors. Special events include our yearly show, a great auction, and a fun Xmas party. The society is open to anyone who shares our love of orchids, so why don't you come and join a terrific bunch of people.
We are an affiliated member of the American Orchid Society (AOS) and Northeast Judging Center.
