Great plants, great prices, for a great cause — that is what you will find at OrchidMania South Florida’s 12th annual orchid sale on Saturday, May 29, and Sunday, May 30, at Dante Fascell Park, 8600 SW 57 Ave. (Red Road) in South Miami. The sale will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days.
There will be tents and tables filled with orchids of all varieties, appealing to beginners, serious collectors, and everyone in between who just loves these fascinating plants.
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.
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 will gladly provide expert care and growing tips for the plants you choose to take home. 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.
