Outreach at Bear Canyon Market

On January 23, Tucson Orchid Society had a booth at the Bear Canyon Open Air Market. We were there to give growing tips to people who may have gotten orchids as holiday gifts, and had no idea what to do with them. Tips included how offer to water and feed orchids, how to repot them, and what kind of light they needed.

Bear Canyon Open air Market

The Tucson Orchid Society will have an outreach booth at the Bear Canyon Open Air Market on Saturday, January 23 from 9am to 2pm.

This is for all you lucky people who got orchids as holiday gifts and don’t know how to take care of them. Please bring any orchid you have questions about to our booth! We will answer your questions and give orchid advice … and maybe doing some repotting.

The event is in the Bear Canyon Shopping Center parking lot on the northwest corner of Tanque Verde and Catalina Highway.

Other “green minded” organizations that will join us at this event are Native Seed Search, Tucson Clean and Beautiful, Tucson Raised Beds, and Arizona Garden Kitchen. We hope to see you there!
