This month we will have a brief installation ceremony for the 2015-16 officers.
Then we will jump right into the hands-on workshop. The focus of the workshop
will be repotting and rejuvenating. So, bring your leaf pots, babies that need
separated, leaves, plants that need repotted due to under or over potting, ailing
plants (if diseased put in a tightly closed clear plastic bag to isolate it from healthy
plants), plants that need serious or not so serious grooming, long necked plants, plants with suckers, dusty plants and newly acquired plants! We will show you how and help you get them off to a great start or back on track!! Be sure to bring your AV repotting and grooming tools and supplies. Also, please bring newspapers or other coverings to protect the table surfaces from soil and water damage. Our members have expressed that they really enjoy hands-on workshop style programs from time to time so it will be a lot of fun, as well as, educational. Be prepared to come bring your plants and relax with other AV enthusiasts as we learn more together and whip our collections into shape! Delicious refreshments are served and guests are always welcome!
Refreshment Volunteers for June are: Peggy Wolfrom, Della Hodge,
Teresa Grenier and Carol Van Wagner

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.
