Welcome to the Crewe & Nantwich District Association of the National Vegetable Society

Welcome to the Crewe and Nantwich District Association of the National Vegetable Society (NVS) of the United Kingdom. NVS is the premier organisation in the United Kingdom for gardeners who are interested in growing vegetables.

NVS Meeting

If your interest stretches from your garden or allotment to competitions and shows, the society can help you with tips and hints on growing better produce and showing it to its best advantage.

We hold monthly meetings usually with a talk from an expert on the second Tuesday of the month in Crewe and full details can be found in the Meetings section.

The objectives of the District Association are the same as the National Vegetable Society but on a local scale. It is easy to join and you can contact us here .
