 About Us

The Heart of Jacksonville African Violet Society is a non-profit group founded in 1992.

Some of our founding and charter members are still active and currently we have 60+ members. We are affiliate members of the African Violet Society of America, the Dixie African Violet Society and the African Violet Council of Florida.

We have fun getting together to learn about the care and growing of the most popular house plant, African violets. Some of our members are novices and some are experienced and seasoned fanciers of violets. Our experienced members assist other members learning how to grow beautiful African violets and other Gesneriads. While sharing our passion for violets, we have formed life-long friendships from the common love of these beautiful little plants.

We have two parties each year – Christmas; and summer vacation. Sometimes, during the summer break, we may have a plant swapping party as well. Check the Events & Meeting Pages to keep up to date with all the fun things our club has planned.

At our meetings, we have plant and supply raffles and educational programs. Our club is our very favorite place to acquire and share violets. Before & after the meetings, members may purchase special soils, fertilizers, supplies and pots. And, best of all, supplies are discounted 50% to members.

Each year we have two fund raising events; our Annual African Violet Show and Sale at the San Jose Church of Christ and the Spring Home & Patio Show. These two events help fund the club's activities and charitable donations for the entire season.

We schedule day trips to commercial African Violet growers located near Jacksonville. This is another opportunity to add to your collection of violets at wholesale prices and to enjoy a day of fun, travel and eat out with other members.

We invite you to be our guest. Meetings are held every 3rd Sunday of the month (September – June) at the Garden Club of Jacksonville, 105 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida. Please check the Meetings Page to verify meeting dates as, on occasion, our meeting date may be in conflict with another event at the Garden Club & may have to be moved to an alternate Sunday.

All new members receive a single membership kit ($20 value). Family members will share. The kits will include: some basic tools, soil, fertilizer, a description of our preferred watering method (wick watering) as well as a beautiful informational brochure from Optimara. Annual membership dues are: $20 for an individual, $25 for a two member family and $10 for each additional family member. After initially joining, dues are collected each September. If you are interested in joining, please download and fill out the membership form below and bring it with you to our next meeting.
