The mission of the SFOS is to foster the culture and cultivation of orchids and to promote education of its members and the public about orchids. Our goals include: an exchange of information from exhibitions, publications, and the Internet, maintenance of a reference library, and participation in worldwide orchid activities.
The San Francisco Orchid Society schedules an annual exposition that serves as its major fund-raiser and educational outreach program. In addition, smaller educational opportunities for the community such as an orchid fair with educational talks and sales scheduled at various times during the year. Lectures and skill sessions on the species and their care and culture take place on a monthly basis at the regularly scheduled meeting of the Society. Activities that the San Francisco Orchid Society schedules for its members only might include excursions to orchid-related facilities like commercial or private greenhouses.
