Toronto Judging Centre

of the

American Orchid Society 

The Toronto Judging Centre Toronto Judging Centre monthly judgings are open to all orchid growers. You need not be a member of AOS or SOOS. You can bring your plants to the Civic Garden Centre before one o'clock on the designated Saturday of each month. Plants are judged for AOS awards in accordance with the Handbook on Judging and Exhibition. If your plant is awarded there is a charge by the AOS (about $50.00 US). Non payment forfeits the right to future judging..

The Centre welcomes interested persons to come and observe the judging. There are opportunities to assist in plant research and administrative chores.

check the Calendar of Events for dates and times.
