Welcome to the Old Dominion African Violet Society of Northern Virginia!  We are a club devoted to the growing and enjoyment of the wonderfully addictive African Violet.  If you are in the Virginia, Washington D.C. or Maryland area, we invite you to join us at one of our monthly meetings to discuss culture, problems, propagation, or any other subject you are interested in.  We welcome new growers and would enjoy the opportunity to help increase your knowledge and enjoyment of African Violets.

Our club now meets the first Saturday of each month at the Mason District Governmental Center in Annandale, VA.

**Please note that our meeting time will be changing beginning January 2005.  We will continue to meet on the first Saturday of the month but the time will now be from 10:00am to 12:00 noon.


(Please note that there seems to be a typo in the directions on the Mason site – the last part of the directions coming from I-495 should be .7 miles past the park entrance.)Meeting Schedule 2005
