A joint initiative between Phipps Conservatory and the Orchid Society of Western Pennsylvania to create and cultivate an orchid collection of note for enjoyment, education and research.

October, 2023


Pfun at Phipps is our OSWP repotting efforts as well as doing the inventory of the Phipps orchid collection.  We are also helping as the Clean-up Crew and with virus-testing too.   BIG CHANGE:  We are now going to Phipps most Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9:45AM – 12:45PM. It’s a great learning experience for all of us.


And don’t miss the Fall Flower Show, Hometown Harvest, at Phipps, opening October 7th.


If you would like to join our Pfun/P-OSI efforts and haven’t previously signed up with us, please let me know at the email address below. 


Thanks and looking forward to working and learning together.
