A Word From the Chairman
Welcome to the National Vegetable Society and I hope you enjoy browsing our website.
The Society, formed in 1961, is now a registered charity with the principal aim of promoting and encouraging the growing of vegetables by providing expert help and advice.
Our membership spans from the novice to the seasoned growers anxious to share their knowledge and experience.
Now you have visited our site I sincerely hope you will join us and become part of a growing, friendly and regionally based organisation. As part of membership you will have access to our ‘members only’ area, and to a members forum where you can have your specific questions answered and amongst other benefits receive our highly recommended Simply Vegetables magazine and much more.
