'The society is currently organised into five regional branches, each covering its own area of the country. Associated with these branches are local District Associations, also known as DAs, who hold local meetings, usually monthly, to talk about growing vegetables. Often speakers are arranged to lecture on growing specific vegetables, such as onions, cauliflowers, tomatoes etc and other topics of interest to gardeners and growers. The speakers are specialist experts and the lectures are of value to both the expert and the novice vegetable grower.'
