This month we are having a brief awards ceremony to honor the AVCO Show winners from our first national AVSA judged show held the second weekend in April. It will be a lot of fun! Last month's "Violets 101 - Part 1" was a very big hit with our members and guests. So as planned, we will continue with our basic knowledge and advanced tips program, "Violets 101 - Part 2, Tools of the Trade". We will learn about and highlight AV tools and how to use them, as well as, other important topics for growing high quality African violets and other gesneriads. Feel free to bring in a new purchase or older plants, leaves, or leaf pots for assistance and demonstration purposes if you so desire. According to our members, our meetings are fun and very educational. Check us out! Delicious refreshments are served and guests are are always welcome!!

The African Violet Club of Ocala had its first African Violet Society of America nationally judged show. The theme was "Violets Take the Oscars!". Click here for details and pictures coming soon.
The African Violet Club of Ocala (AVCO) exists to bring together African violet and other gesneriad fanciers in the north central Florida area for the purpose of learning more about the care of our most popular houseplant. In the process of this endeavor, we are making new friends. We were formed in January 2007 by a small, dedicated group of enthusiastic African violet fanciers led by Carolee Carter.
