Dave Sorokowsky:  Multifloral Paphiopedilum

After receiving his degree in biochemistry from the University of Toronto, Dave opted to step outside his chosen field and operated a tropical fish import business for eight years. 
Upon returning to school, Dave received
a degree in enology and viticulture from Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario. While attending Brock, Dave began acquiring orchids one 2 pot at a time and before he graduated, Dave had over 100 orchids. Winemaking and a passion for orchids prompted Dave to seek a warmer climate in California about one year later. 
Dave has been growing
Paphiopedilums for about 12 years and seriously hybridizing for the past 8 years. His Paphiopedilums have received 75 awards to date from the American Orchid Society, with many of those awarded plants playing important roles in his breeding program.


The plant table will be supplied by Dave Sorokowsky

He will also bring plants for sale.

Dinner with the Speaker at 5:30 pm is at Sichuan Fortune House, 41 Woodsworth Ln, Pleasant Hill , CA
