If you’re an orchid hobbyist or someone with a budding orchid addiction you’ll want to join Ben Oliveros, Larry Kuekes and Shelby Smith from the Hilo Orchid Society for Volcano Art Center’s orchid workshop 9 a.m.-noon April 25.

Larry Kuekes will discuss which orchids grow best at different elevations. Ben Oliveros will be giving hands on demonstrations for dividing and mounting. Shelby Smith, a self-confirmed orchid addict, will be on hand to answer questions. Not only will you learn a thing or two, but also, thanks to the Hilo Orchid Society, you’ll be able to take home an orchid.

The cost for the workshop at the center’s Niaulani Campus is $20 for VAC members and $25 for nonmembers. For more information or to register, call VAC at 967-8222 or visit online at www.volcanoartcenter.org.
