West Gippsland Orchid Club Inc.
A 0015893E

The W.G.O.C. was formed in October 1986 by a small group of hobby orchid growers. The Club is based in Warragul but draws members from a wide area.
Adjacent clubs are based at Traralgon,  Wonthaggi, and in the Melbourne suburbs.

Our aims can be summarised as follows:
             (a) To promote understanding, appreciation, propagation and culture of orchids among members.
             (b) To foster public education and appreciation of orchids through displays, shows and educational material.
             (c) To support the conservation of orchids.

The Club meets on the first Thursday of each month (except January) at the Scout Hall, Victoria St, Drouin (Opposite Gulai Street). Hall open at 7pm, Meeting starts at 8pm.
Activities include:
            Speakers, Demonstrations, Sales Table, Club library
            Show bench of plants in flower with competitions in 3 grades
            Informal discussions and learning/visits to orchid nurseries.

A newsletter is posted to members the week prior to meetings to keep them informed of Club matters and to encourage their participation.

Members pay an annual fee to cover operating costs of the club. This may be a single or family membership.

The Club holds its own shows each year during the main flowering season.  This allows the public the opportunity to view a variety of plants in flower and to learn something of their culture. The public may purchase plants if they wish at these shows.
Displays are held in the August/September/October period.
