August 27, 2016 - August 28, 2016
KABI Australasian native orchid society show from their new location Strathpine Community Centre Sat & Sun 27-28 August 2016.
The show in late August will feature both local and national orchids, being held at their new annual venue: Tom Petrie Room, Strathpine Community Centre, 199 Gympie Road, Strathpine
Parking available off Mecklem St on 27-28 August 2016 (9am-5pm Saturday, 9am-2pm Sunday).
The aim of The A.N.O.S (Qld) KABI Group Inc. is to promote the culture and preservation of the native orchids of Australasia. Through our annual show we hope to educate and inspire the general public to both be aware of the native orchids within the local area as well as foster the growing of native orchids sourced from legal line breed stock.
There will be an array of beautiful native orchids on display with vibrant colours and heady perfume from the magnificent dendrobium speciosum (the king orchid) as well as a number of vendors where the public can purchase to put in their homes be it in the garden or shade house. There will be a number of experienced society members available to answer questions to help people grow these wonderful plants. There will also be plant aids to help people keep their plants healthy and flower each year. There will be light refreshments available all day with scrumptious home made slices to select from and sandwiches.
