The simple pleasure of meeting face-to-face to discuss growing African Violets is one of the main reasons for being part of an African Violet Club.
Whether a ‘Newbie’ who has never grown African Violets or a more experienced grower, each of us contributes information, learns different methods for growing, shares successes and challanges.
All of us learn to put aside our FEAR of the African Violet which seems so intimidating because we do not understand its simply needs—potting mixture, moisture , light.
Nothing can compare to the thrill of finding the first tiny ‘rabbit ear’ on that leaf which sat in a cup for a couple months,seeming to do nothing! that first bloom! Nothing compares to the excitement we feel. It is hard not to become teary eyed when we see tiny green specks where we planted invisible seeds three weeks before!
Just know each of us will share the excitement of your success as you tell us about it at our next meeting.
Be An Active Club Member
No club functions without a lot of behind the scenes participation. Elected officers accept the responsibilities to present effective club functions, yet each member can make the load lighter in so many small ways.
None of us devotes his time exclusively to African Violets, but each of us can accept the responsibilty to help the club be its best.
WE ARE THE BEST—WHEN WE GIVE OUR BEST
How might we help? Ask yourself a few questions–think about it!
- Could I offer to follow-up on members who miss a meeting

- Will I share the benefits of my unique talent

- Have I asked: What can I do to help?
