Great plants and great prices for a great cause are what you will find at OrchidMania South Florida’s 13th annual orchid sale on Saturday, May 28, and Sunday, May 29, at Dante Fascell Park, 8600 SW 57 Ave. in South Miami. Sale hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
There will be tents and tables filled with orchids of all varieties, appealing to the beginner, serious collector, and everyone in between who just loves these fascinating plants. And you can feel good about your purchases because proceeds benefit Project Cradle, a program at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine that provides assistance to children and adolescents living with HIV/AIDS. This year there also will be a selection of greenhouse raised culinary herbs for sale.
OrchidMania South Florida is an all-volunteer charity of orchid enthusiasts. Throughout the year, the volunteers meet on Sundays at the OrchidMania greenhouse to care for the orchids that have been donated by commercial growers and hobbyists. These knowledgeable volunteers gladly will provide expert care and growing tips for the plants you choose to take home. And if the orchid bug already has bitten you, OrchidMania welcomes new volunteers. It is a great way to learn from experts and give back to your community at the same time.
