Orchid Sale and Symposium

  • Share:
Name: Orchid Sale and Symposium
Date: October 12, 2019 - October 13, 2019
Event Description:
The winter home site of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford was also home to numerous orchids that hung from the fruit-bearing Mango trees. Henry Nehrling and John Kunkel Small visited the Edisons and gave them the gift of orchids. Orchids were Mina Edison's favorite flowers and she attached them to trees on her Fort Myers property, just as they grow wild in the Everglades. Today, we continue to attach orchids to trees and throughout the site, there is usually an orchid blooming every day, all year long. We are partnering with the Southwest Florida Orchid Society to hold our first Orchid Sale and Symposium. Vendors will be on site, selling orchids and there will be educational opportunities throughout the day. Check our website for additional information coming soon!
