The New York State African Violet Society (NYSAVS) was organized November 14, 1953.
The purpose of the NYSAVS is to bring together people that are interested in growing African Violets.
- To bring to the public through the society’s publications information concerning African violets, their culture, and their propagation;
- To provide meetings at which African violets are exhibited (to stimulate the interest of this plant) and which provide a forum where interested persons may be informed of all aspects of the horticulture of the African violet both by means of informed speakers and experts and by general discussion among those in attendance; and
NYSAVS is affiliated with the African Violet Society of America, Inc. (AVSA) and the African Violet Society of Canada (AVSC) and shall support their objectives and rules.
We are looking forward to the 2021 NYS African Violet Society Convention and Show,
October 14-16, 2021
at the Hilton Garden Inn, Auburn, NY.
The theme for the show is “Violets for Hire”.
