The Greater North Texas Orchid Society (GNTOS) is dedicated to the culture, protection,and appreciation of orchids all over the world. GNTOS brings together people interested in the culture and propagation of orchids, and also serves an educational function in disseminating information about orchids to the public.
We have regular monthly meetings (the first Sunday of every month) in which a featured speaker talks about an orchid topic (Genera, culture, etc); Orchids 101 for beginners, as well as plant show and tell and plant raffles. Our meetings are located at North Haven Gardens, 7700 Northaven Rd., Dallas, TX 75230. More details and a map are located here.
Whether you are an expert grower or just got your first orchid, we welcome all to visit our monthly meetings and events!
August 2014 MEETING
The Aug. 3 program "Abbondanza!: the Orchids of Sicily" will be presented by Tom Mirenda, who has been the Orchid Collection Specialist at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. for ten years. Growing orchids for over 30 years, Mr. Mirenda also contributes two columns each month for Orchids magazine and travels frequently, making presentations to diverse audiences on orchids. Currently working on a project to coordinate and centralize North American orchid conservation efforts, he hopes to extend the influence to other parts of the world where orchids are imperiled.
