This Spring marks the Baystate African Violet Society’s 50th Anniversary. They will sponsor an AVSA-approved African violet show and plant sale. The show gives people an opportunity to enter their plants and floral designs for judging to win ribbons and prizes. You can also attend workshops on AV care. At the sale, commercially grown plants and supplies are sold, along with plants grown by our members. There is an $10 entrance fee to Tower Hill. The event takes place Saturday, April 16 from 10 – 5, and Sunday, April 17, from 10 – 4.Â For more information, log on to www.baystateafricanviolet.org. Picture courtesy of myviolet.com.
