The GROS held our first Orchid Show in April of 1969 at the Garden Center of Rochester. Many other of our annual shows of that era consisted of groups of orchids displayed on shelves, with little adornment or attempt to create a “natural” or artistic environment that is typical of orchid shows today.

Our new Spring Show will feature many exhibits with a wide and interesting variety of orchids in artistically produced natural environments. In addition, our sales area will be stocked with an extensive array of orchids in many different genera.

Please see our Show page for a full schedule.

Our Meetings

The Genesee Region Orchid Society (GROS) is a 501(c) non-profit organization based in Rochester, NY.

Our regular meeting night is the first Monday following the first Sunday of each month. We occasionally change the meeting date as our schedule requires, but we always list the correct date well in advance both on this website and in our monthly newsletter. Our meetings are open to everyone without charge – feel free to attend and find out what our Society is all about!

Meetings typically consist of a brief business meeting to conduct our club’s routine activities, a special presentation on an orchid subject, an orchid raffle (2 tickets for $1), and a Show Table where members can display their flowering plants for everyone to see. For more information, please contact any of our officers.

See our entire meeting schedule with all locations and maps here.
