Love orchids? Want to learn more, or share your knowledge with others? The Carmel Orchid Society (COS) is the place. Monthly meetings have informative speakers, an opportunity to win orchids, food and fun. The society also has a picnic, auction, holiday dinner, and sponsors an orchid show in May. Meetings are the 1st Monday of the month, except months with social events (September & December usually).


Dues are for the calendar year and are $20 for individuals and $30 for families and vendors. It costs an extra $10 to get the BackBulb (our newsletter) by US Mail. membership form (PDF)
