Welcome to the Central Vancouver Island Orchid Society. We are excited to share our passion for orchids with you.
We are a group of orchid enthusiasts from Nanaimo and the surrounding area who gather for monthly Sunday meetings at the North Oyster Community Center at 13467 Cedar Road. At these meetings, members and guest speakers share knowledge and experience for growing orchids successfully. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned grower, we invite you to join our society to learn more about the fascinating and diverse world of orchids. The CVIOS brings together people interested in orchids to promote and encourage orchid culture, preservation, education, and all other orchid-related activities of interest to its members.
