SADDLEBACK VALLEY BROMELIAD SOCIETY
Saddleback Valley Bromeliad Society Mission Viejo, California USA
OUR MISSION: The Saddleback Valley Bromeliad Society is an educational organization promoting the study and cultivation of bromeliads and fellowship among those who do the same hobby.
The Saddleback Valley Bromeliad Society meets the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Norman Murray Community & Senior Center 24932 Veterans Way, Mission Viejo, CA.
Our Next Meeting will be Thursday, October 5th 2023, 7:00 PM
Our October program will feature Scott Sandel, who will present a slide program entitled “Colombia: Bromeliads and More in the Andes.”
Scott and husband Jim traveled to a few regions of this habitat-rich country and will share a presentation with many evocative images of landscapes, lots of bromeliads, and a few orchids. They visited high altitude places with plants that we cannot grow well unless we have an air-conditioned greenhouse! A highlight of the trip was a 3-day horseback trip following the Rio Magdalena from the Andes valley to its source high in the páramo.
Scott is a past-president of the San Diego Bromeliad Society and a frequent speaker at our society. He will also bring a few plants for sale from his collection. Please join us for this very interesting presentation.
Join us for an evening of beautiful Bromeliads - including show and tell plants, the raffle, and the silent auction, Plus wonderful Bromeliad friends to visit with, and now refreshments are back!
VISITORS ARE WELCOME - come to the meeting, sign in, tell us how you found out about us and you will receive a free raffle ticket!
PLANT AUCTIONIf members have an especially interesting plant to share they often donate an offset to our SILENT AUCTION or RAFFLE TABLE. We often have special plants for you to bid. From common and small to rare and larger plants. The funds raised help to offset the room-rental costs and club activities.
REFRESHMENTSNormally we have delicious refreshments and special treats that enhance a great evening. Currently however, due to CV-19 restrictions, that is not possible. We hope that can change soon.
SUPPLIESBuy items needed to help your plants look their best and thrive! We have pots, tags, and other special items you need.
