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. 




Please note that our monthly meetings at McNabb Community Centre are suspended during the Covid-19 crisis.

Although we are disappointed not to meet in person and enjoy our usual activities, we are meeting via Zoom technology and we still have an interesting program.

Our virtual meetings take place at the usual time of 1:30 p.m. on the first Sunday of the month, from September to June, except on holidays.

We are pleased to welcome new members and guests. If you are interested in joining a virtual meeting, please contact us at

Our next virtual meeting is being held on April 11 at 1:30pm (via Zoom)


At our meeting, we will take a trip to the Ohio State African Violet Society's 2020 Virtual Flower Show.  No need to pack a suitcase, have your passport or cross the border - just sit back and relax!  There will also be a presentation on how an African Violet Show is organized.



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