about our speaker
Doug Overstreet is a well recognized orchid grower
and speaker. Some of the many hats that Mr. Overstreet wears are:
Fully Accredited Judge in the American Orchid Society judging
system, Pacific South Region, past president of the Southland Orchid
Show Committee, creator of "Anyone Can Grow Orchids...Even You"
video tapes and perennial OSSC auctioneer. Doug has the ability to
present the complex world of orchids in a manner suitable for the
advanced enthusiast and yet easily understood by the novice.
Recently, Doug has started managing the magnificent orchid
collection at the Thornton Estate in San Marino, which, along with
the estate's gardens, is a promised gift to the Huntington Library,
Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens.
Mr. Overstreet will speak on everything we will need to
know about planning to enter a plant into the upcoming Huntington
Orchid Show; repotting, placing stakes, presentation of blooms for a
show, writing & deciphering tags, etc.
After Doug's presentation, join us in celebration of OSSC's 75th
Anniversary with a slice of special cake and coffee!
