In this video, Dave Lowery, VP of Marketing, gives an overview of the 2020 Orchid Mania and the Vibrant Vietnam theme.
This year Orchid Mania celebrates the natural beauty of Vietnam, and the Vietnamese culture that cherishes nature and plants. From the warm tropical forests and expansive coastline to rolling hills and mountains, plant diversity thrives throughout Vietnam. Orchids grown in the region are diverse and celebrated throughout the year. Orchid Mania explores four highlights of plant culture in Vietnam natural areas, agriculture, food, and flowers.
Ms. Gia Hoa Ryan, a leader of the local Vietnamese community, assisted with the design and items in the presentation such as food items, bicycles, musical instruments and more.
