Fascination of Orchids Inc.
A non profit group of orchid lovers who wish to protect and extend these endangered plants by helping and encouraging the public to successfully grow, flower and exhibit them. They conduct frequent talks and exhibits and assist local colleges, garden clubs and youth organizations. They are also asking for donations of orchid plants that are no longer wanted. You will receive a tax deductable receipt for their fair market value and have the knowledge that these plants will be cared for and hopefully rebloomed and then given to shut in persons at local hospitals, hospices, homes etc.
