February 2020


The Orchid and Bonsai Show is open, and we can settle down to Pfun dates in February.

There are 2 dates, Wednesday February 19 and Tuesday February 25. As always, we begin @ 9:30 am and are usually done by 12:30. The main effort will be repotting orchids.

You can plan to see the show and eat at the Cafe.

Parking is in the volunteer/employee lot off Frew Street Extension and behind the Conservatory. If you have an orange ‘volunteer’ sign, please put it on your windshield. If you do not have one, please as us for your own sign.

If you have been working individually with Katie, thanks. Do not forget to send me your hours so I can log it on the OSWP record. We reached 500 hours in 2019 and probably much more as some of the individual efforts are not being recorded.

Always, thank you for this commitment.

If you have any questions, email me @ or call 412-367-1556.

Thanks for your help.

We park in the Phipps lot off Frew St. Ext. after leaving a sign on our dashboard that indicates we are volunteers. From the parking lot, it is a short walk up a driveway to the production greenhouses. We begin at 9:30 and typically are finished by 12:30 with a break during our session. We often take time for lunch at the Cafe.

In the rare event that there is no parking in that area, just park in the front of the Conservatory, in the visitors’ lot around the statue. If you need to do this, do NOT put a note on your dashboard that you are volunteering!  There is usually parking on the driveway to the greenhouses. The road is narrow so, one side only and close to the curb. ​​
