About Us

The Toronto African Violet and Gesneriad Society is a not-for-profit group whose aim is to share the 'addiction' of African Violets and Gesneriads by fostering interest among its members.

We're not strangers,
only friends you have not met!

Members of TAVGS get together on a monthly basis, on the second Sunday of each month from September to June. These meetings will often include guest speakers, beginner's corner, raffle table, plant sales and other interesting items.
