This is the official WEB site of the Dixie African Violet Society (DAVS), a nonprofit organization, founded in 1956 to afford an association of persons with similar interest in African violets within an area not too vast for occasional meeting - - JOIN US!

There are thirteen states included in DAVS: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. Groups primarily concerned with growing and showing African violets in these states can become affiliate members of DAVS; however, individual membership is open to all persons world wide.
