Our society was formed in the mid-1980s by a group of hobbyists as a way of sharing information and learning about growing orchids. Today, Pinelands OS consists of approximately 50 members with varying levels of orchid experience, growing their orchids in greenhouses, under lights, and on windowsills. We have members with hundreds of plants, and members with only a few. All skill levels are welcome. Our goal is to extend the knowledge and appreciation of orchids to our members and the greater gardening community of the Delaware Valley.
