Carol Holdren is a long time orchid lover with a history of participation in the affairs and activities of orchid societies. She bought a purple Vanda at a local botanical garden show. That plant lead to several others as well as membership and participation in Deerfield Beach Orchid Society.
As her collection grew, she and some of her friends took a class in Orchidology at the University of Florida. Carol also began attending the West Palm Beach Judging Center and became an accredited judge in 2003. She is presently Vice-Chair of the West Palm Beach Judging Center as well as a director of the International Orchid Foundation whose free website is Orchids.org.
Carol will be speaking on "Orchid Judging", a program to help you get ready for the upcoming shows.
