Jeff Trimble:  Cymbidium Species


Jeff Trimble started growing orchids in 1972 when his mother gave him two flowering Cymbidiums she did not want.  He joined his first orchid club in 1975 and, by 1978, was show chairman for the Peninsula Orchid Society, a member of the Santa Clara Valley Orchid Society and president of the Malihini Orchid Society.

In 1980, he was asked to be the VP and then president of the San Francisco Orchid Society.  Jeff took on the task of Show Chairman at the Pacific Orchid Exposition one year and later, co-founded Orchids in the Park.

Jeff is past president of the Peninsula Orchid Society, past president of the Cymbidium Society of America, past president of the Gold Coast Cymbidium Growers, and a former CSA Judge and judging chairman for Northern California.

Currently, Jeff is involved in the AOS judging program with the California Sierra Nevada judging group.

Jeff grows Cymbidiums, Odontoglossum, Cattleya alliance and many other orchid species in a greenhouse in Rocklin, California.

The Raffle table will be supplied by Jeff and he will also have some plants for sale.
