Love Orchids? Don’t Miss Orchid Mania at The Lemon Collective this Saturday


3015 Georgia Avenue, NW

From an email:

“Join us for an orchid-filled day at The Lemon Collective! Orchid Mania is a three-part event. Join us for one portion or all three!

1:00 – 2:00 pm: Orchid Clinic for Beginners and Mini Pop-up Sale (FREE)
Bring us your tired, your poor, your wilty moth orchids — the ones you probably bought at the grocery store on a whim and then all the flowers fell off. We’ll do our best to diagnose the problem. We’ll also have some orchids for sale in case you want to grow your collection.

2:00 – 3:00 pm:

Orchids without Fear: A Talk on Basic Phalaenopsis Orchid Care ($15-$20)
Learn basic care for the most commonly available orchid, the phalaenopsis or moth orchid. We’ll cover watering, light requirements, re-blooming, and common misconceptions about these plants. As a bonus, we’ll throw in some fun/weird orchid facts (there are many) and a dash of history as well.
Tickets are $20 each or bring your bestie and get two tickets for $30.

3:30 – 4:30 pm: Living Wall Hangings with Orchids Workshop ($50-$55)
In this one-hour workshop, we’ll teach students how to make a beautiful living wall hanging with miniature moth orchids. In their natural environment, these plants grow on trees, not in the pots you see at the garden store. We’ll show students how to grow these plants vertically with a little bit of moss and tree bark. All materials, including plants and care instructions, will be provided.
Tickets are $55 each or bring your bestie and get two tickets for $100.

Sign up for both the lecture and workshop for $65.”

There’s a reason Well-Paid Maids has hundreds of positive reviews from happy clients.

The home cleaning company pays cleaners — who are W-2 employees — a living wage starting at $24 an hour. Plus, cleaners are offered benefits, including insurance, 24 paid days off a year, 100% employer-paid commuting costs and more.

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, said it best: “People deserve their work to be respected and recognized. When that happens, you love what you do, and you create the best results.”
