The Annapolis Valley African Violet Society is a
small group of people in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia who meet
monthly to discuss the growing and care of Saintpaulias (African Violets)
and other related plants in the gesneriad family. The group is highly
active and between them, the members grow approximately 450 different
varieties of African Violet, Streptocarpus, Columnea, Aeschynanthus,
Sinningia, Episcia and Primulina. Many of the members attend African Violet
Conventions and shows throughout
and the U.S.A. The AVAVS is
affiliated with the African Violet Society of Canada
(AVSC) and the African Violet Society
The AVAVS has a judged show each year where the growing efforts of its
members are recognized and rewarded. In its membership, the AVAVS has
two Senior AVSA certified Judges as well as an Advanced Judge and a Student Judge who provide the group with a wealth
of information on showing and judging plants.
