About Me…

Greg Griffis first became aware of orchids in 2009. He first heard about them through a college friend, who had always admired orchids. Studying at West Chester University, from which he graduated with a degree in Music Education, put him in close proximity to Longwood Gardens. He attended the 2010 Longwood Orchid Show where he purchased his first orchid. One plant quickly became twenty or so, and before long he was hooked. He has worked as the Grower and Manager of Parkside Orchid Nursery. He also worked for Hilo Orchid Farm in Hawaii before becoming the orchid grower at Longwood Gardens in 2015. Read more here…

Orchid Talks

I currently offer seven different orchid talks. Each talk is approximately 1 hour in length and all talks include powerpoint presentations, which are full of photographs, key text points, and diagrams for effective transmission of information. Read more about my talks here…
