Alfred County Orchid Society takes it's name from the magisterial district of Port Shepstone during the old colonial era, of the later part of the 19th century, that was known as Alfred County, and was situated between the Umtamvuna river in the south and the Umzumbe river in the north. To the north of us is the Umzinto magisterial district that was known as Alexandra county, with an even older history, and if our planing works out well, the location of the new Alexandra County Orchid Society in the next year or so.
