December 2011

It’s certainly an honour to be President again after 20 years and I’d like to thank everybody sincerely for their encouraging words.

During the time I’ve served on the VGA Executive Committee in Treasurer, Junior and Senior Vice President positions there have certainly been plenty of changes, both in the field and with politics and administration issues.

A strong membership of our Vegetable Growers Association is essential so that we can move forward together, promoting our products through all current and future channels available to us.

We must convince consumers that our products, which are still grown here in their backyard, are vital for them to remain healthy, smart, energetic and good looking.

Veggies tick all the right boxes for a longer life to share with their families.

Talk to you all in the next newsletter and have a very Merry Christmas and New Year.

Eat and Enjoy Life..
