Boldly Beautiful: A Behind the Scenes Look at Growing Orchids
Jan 28th, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Meet Color Orchids’ head grower Bas van Eijk, originally from The Netherlands, who will give an exciting presentation about the growing process of Phalaenopsis Orchids and shed insight into the processes that are occurring at Color Orchids in Stevensburg Virginia. Learn how this innovative growing facility brings color to life!
Bas van Eijk was born and raised in The Netherlands, where horticulture accounts for 20% of the Dutch economy and where it is possible to go to college specifically to become a grower. Having been born into a family of deeply involved in horticulture for four generations, Bas was no exception. After graduating and doing amazing internships abroad in California and New-Zealand he discovered there is much more potential abroad than staying in The Netherlands. This led Bas to move to the US where he started out in California. Bas has worked for Color Orchids since July 2016.
