Yakima Arboretum Hosts Orchid and Garden Show

Posted: Updated:
 YAKIMA, WA.- It's officially spring which means outdoor and gardening enthusiasts are preparing their gardens.

The Yakima Orchid Society hosted a gardening seminar at the Yakima arboretum Sunday afternoon, offering tips and demonstrating how to best care for your garden.

They had orchid displays and a chance for local gardeners to purchase rare and exotic orchids.

Event organizers say it's a community tradition they hold each year come spring.

“It's beneficial to the community because we attract people from all over the state and from out of state and we promote gardening and gardening is a good thing that everyone should do it's very therapeutic,” event organizer Paul Mcarthy explained.  

They have around forty members in the Yakima Orchid Society, but events like these help them draw in more people from the community.
