Our meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:30 for social and 7:00 meeting at the LSU AgCenter Burden Conference Center, 4560 Essen Lane, Baton Rouge, LA 70809.  Visitors are welcome.

Wanda and Glenn Gawarecki supported BROS on the evening of September 21 at event at Burden...Music in the Gardens.  Below Wanda recaps...

Music in the Gardens was a fun night. We had several people stop at our table to look at all the beautiful blooms. Several folks asked about the general care of orchids.  Glenn explained about watering and sunlight.  There was a lady that had questions about her orchid that has bloomed twice a year for 3 years, however she was concerned with the size of the pot. We explained ways to handle the situation.  We sold 4 orchids, enjoyed conversations with many people, invited everyone to come to the meetings, and the music was great. 


The Baton Rouge Orchid Conservatory at Burden is an ongoing work in process and a labor of love by several individuals lead by Frank Zachariah.

Thank you to all the volunteers helping with the Conservatory!!
