Welcome to Tan Bark Online, home of the Toowoomba Orchid Society Inc. Established in 1955. We bring together orchid growers from Toowoomba and surrounding areas, sharing our passion and knowledge with experienced and novice growers alike. The society runs four orchid shows throughout the year in Autumn, Winter, Spring & Summer. We also have growing workshops, as well as a range of social functions. Monthly meetings consist of a mini show as well as an educational segment.
Have a browse through our growing sheets, on growing orchids in the Toowoomba climate, view our affiliated clubs and have a look at some great orchids for sale by our members. You will also find show dates, as well as TOSKA (our growing workshops) dates.
