Growing Trailers for our Project Plant

10:30 am at the 
Marion County Sheriff's Office (Brian Litz Sheriff's Substation) 
                            9048 SW Highway 200, Ocala, Florida 34476

This month our program is on growing African violets that have a trailing habit.
They are called 'trailers' or African violet trailer's.  You will receive a project plant
which just happens to be a miniature trailer this year.  It is always fun to try growing
something different!   We will be repotting this cute little african violet and learning all
about its care including differences in care compared to standard violets.  This
promises to be a fun, informational meeting!  Delicious refreshments are provided. 
Guests and new members are always welcome!

Refreshment Volunteers for September are Dani Wyatt, Peggy Waibel and Joy Lutrie.

Our October 25th meeting is a field trip to the AVCF Show and Sale in Altamonte Springs, FL.  We will not be meeting at our regularly location.  Please contact Joy R. for more information. 

Our next regular meeting is November 22 at the same time and the Sheriff's office location.   To learn about future meeting topics, look

Mary Lou taught us how to make five different lovely designs at our August meeting.   We were very pleased to host guests from the Heart of Jacksonville AVS for this special meeting.   Our members exuded enthusiasm for creating designs for the upcoming show in Altamonte Springs after this informative and creative presentation.  Thank you Mary Lou.

One of our talented members penned this beautiful poem about African Violets!

New AVSA Survey!    Joyce Stork ask me to post this so here it is.
All members are invited to participate in the latest AVSA survey to get input on several slogans developed by the AVSA Membership and Promotion committee. Your comments will help the committee to select a slogan that will be effective to use as we work to build membership. The survey is fairly short and quick to complete. Thanks for your help!  8/23/14

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.  For more information on the benefits of club membership please click here.
