Upcoming Events

FAVSD meetings are held monthly at the First Presbyterian Church, 1114 W. University Dr., Denton, TX 76201, usually on the second Tuesday night of the month from 7:00-9:00 pm. Each meeting includes an educational presentation on African violets by guest experts or club members, and all meetings conclude with the members sharing plants and leaves.

The FAVSD annual show and sale usually takes place in the spring of the year. The multiple submissions are arranged by category, and exemplary plants in each category win best in show.  The violet sale provides a friendly opportunity for visitors to buy African Violets and growing supplies, and club members are available to help the interested shoppers prepare their leaves for propagation. This event is free to the public.

The FAVSD workshop and sale is usually held annually in the summer. This free event is open to the public. Invited experts present on multiple topics relating to African violets (e.g., growing different violet species, care, lighting, insects, hybridization, soil amendments). Lunch is free for the attendees, and the violet sale is a big draw.
