Welcome to the Tidewater Orchid Society

Our Purpose

To promote public interest in and appreciation of orchids by undertaking exhibits, shows, and other promotions, and will endeavor to increase members’ knowledge of orchids and their culture by lectures, workshops, and educational programs.

TOS is organized exclusively for charitable, educational and scientific purposes, including, for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations under Section 501 (3) of the Internal Revenue Code (or the corresponding section of any future Federal tax code).

Time for a quick update.

Greetings…I hope everyone was able to spend some quality time with friends and family during the Thanksgiving holiday. Just a quick update to remind you that we will have no meeting for December. However, we will have our Awards Banquet on the 9th of December to celebrate another successful year at the T.O.S., and recognize a few of our outstanding members for growing some pretty amazing orchids. If you are not able to make it, we wish you all the best for the holiday season and hope to see you at the next meeting on January 6th at the NBG. Also check out the NBG for the Dominion Energy Garden of Lights Show nightly thru December, you can find more information on the links page for the NBG.
