Everything you ever wanted to know about soil and "soilless mixes", but were
afraid to ask! Yes, our program this month is on the components of "soil". Our
special speaker has a background in chemistry and has studied various
soils for many years. This promises to be a very interesting and informative
program. Also, please bring your project plant this month and we'll see how
everyone is doing with them. As always we will have wonderful refreshments
and a fun raffle as well. Feel free to bring guests as well to learn and enjoy the
comraderie of other violet enthusiasts.
Refreshment volunteers for February are Karen Cavanaugh, Dorothy Griffin,
Nancy Frost and Laura Perdomo

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.
