The Society of African Violet Growers in the Greater Ottawa Region

Do you enjoy plants and would you like to learn more about African Violets? Would you like to meet other plant lovers who grow these beautiful plants? Then you may want to check us out. The Ottawa African Violet Society is a non–profit organization that shares information and growing techniques on African violets and Gesneriads. We welcome plant lovers with all levels of experience. 




Given the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, the Ottawa African Violet Society has decided to meet virtually this year. While we're disappointed to not meet in person and enjoy our usual activities, we still have an interesting program planned for 2020-2021. We are happy to welcome new members to our virtual meetings.
Our virtual meetings are taking place at the usual time of 1:30p.m., on the first Sunday of the month, except on holidays.  If you are a plant lover interested in learning more about African Violets and Gesneriads, and would like to take part in our meetings, please contact for more information.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, our next virtual meeting is being held on November 8, 2020 at 1:30pm (via Zoom)

"Growing Miniature and Semi-miniature African Violets"


We will show the AVSA Webinar "Growing Miniature and Semi-miniature African Violets" with some discussion afterwards.  We have several experienced growers of semi and mini African Violets who can share their tips for growing success.






The agenda of events of the Ottawa African Violet Society for our meetings may be subject to change.
