One of the most rewarding things for me about the Orchid Project is starting conservation and education projects across the globe. Some of you may remember our visit to Cape Town in October 2007 where we exhibited at the Cape Town Flower and Garden show and donated a Laminar flow cabinet to the Erica Primary School.
Well I’m very pleased to report that this project is going well! Since our visit the project is building new greenhouses and has increased it’s Cymbidium collection. They are selling and propagating Cymbidiums for fundraising for the project.
The principle at Erica Primary, Jonathan Dennis, has also provided me with a press release on the project and the story so far. Have a look at the brand new Capt Town Project page for more information, including news articals and photo libraries!
