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? The Ottawa African Violet Society is a non–profit organization that shares information and growing techniques for African violets and other Gesneriads. We welcome plant lovers with all levels of experience. To learn more about becoming a member of our Society, please click here


We use a combination of virtual (via Zoom) and in-person for our monthly meetings, which take place at 1:00 p.m. on the first Sunday of the month (except on holidays), from September through June (we do not meet in July and August).  Our in-person meetings are held at Rideau Park United Church, 2203 Alta Vista Drive, Ottawa.  We welcome new members and guests! If you are interested in attending a meeting as a guest, please contact us at
