Ben Oliveros, Larry Kuekes, and Shelby Smith from the Hilo Orchid Society will host the workshop.

Kuekes will discuss how to read orchid tags, while Oliveros will give hands on demonstrations for mounting, and Smith, a self-confirmed “orchid addict,” will be in line to answer any and all orchid related questions.

The workshop costs $25 for the general public and $20 for VAC members. All participants will take home an orchid.


To register, call VAC at 967-8222 or visit the VAC website.
