Recently, over sixty Calusa Garden Club members and guests came out to hear Marcie and Bill Gorski, Marco Island residents and officers of Gulf Coast Orchid Alliance, give an educational presentation on “Orchid Varieties – Their Similarities and Differences.” Marcie and Bill brought over 12 specimens of their own 167 orchid varieties to show the crowd. The Gorskis’ enthusiasm for cultivating orchids and for showing different varieties was evident in their educational and entertaining presentation. They discussed orchid cultivation, orchid variety similarities and differences, and answered many audience questions.

The Calusa Garden Club meets the second Monday of each month at Wesley United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, 350 S. Barfield Drive, Marco Island. Business meetings begin at 12:30 PM and programs begin at 1:15 PM. Calusa Garden Club welcomes visitors interested in our educational programs and visitors interested in membership.
