About the Aroid Society of Australia (ASA)

The ASA, an incorporated not for profit organisation, was founded in 2017 by a group of like minded individuals with the goal of encouraging and promoting interest in the aroid family of plants. The ASA provides its members with a network of experts to assist in plant identification and encourages the development of new types of Aroids within Australia.

The ASA is responsible for convening plant sales, conferences, speakers and shows, through a network of state representatives, as well as through social media. The ASA co-operates with other organisations with similar goals both in Australia and internationally to further our networks and knowledge base.

We are run by a network of dedicated volunteers who are all passionate plant people in different ways. Most importantly our society is about having fun and making friends in a warm and welcoming environment, bringing into contact all those who collect and grow aroids.

Please send all correspondence to: Aroid Society of Australia Inc, P O Box 442, Salisbury QLD 4107.
