Tygerberg Orchid Group "TOG"

Who is TOG

Tygerberg Orchid Group (TOG) was established in 1985. We are an Orchid Society active in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town Metropole area, in the Western Cape,  in South Africa.

The group aims to promote the interest and participation in propagation, culture and hybridization of all orchid genera, thereby elevating the standard and quality of the plants. We promote these ideals in the Tygerberg, Northern Suburbs area, in the Western Cape, by recruiting members, from any walk of life, who are interested in cultivating and growing orchids.

We share the knowledge we have about orchids with the members, by means of regular informative meetings, newsletters and an established  library where members borrow books free of charge.

We arrange shows, competitions and exhibitions of orchids and we ensure that accredited judging takes place and awards are granted.

We promote the conservation of local wild orchid species.

We are affiliated to the South African Orchid Council and are registered as a non-profit organization (Registration Number: 030-66O-NPO).

This website has been designed to provide all those interested with the necessary information concerning our Orchid Society, feedback about our monthly meetings and our bi-annual orchid shows.
