VPA - THE HOLMER GREEN GARDENING ASSOCIATION
Founded 1944
Home

Welcome to the website of the VPA - the Holmer Green Gardening Association.

The
Association – referred to locally as ‘The VPA’ – is Holmer Green’s gardening club.  More than that, it is an organisation that provides a social focus for the village of Holmer Green and the surrounding area.


The VPA was formed in 1944 to help 'dig for victory’ in the Second World War.  Its objectives were to 'encourage and improve the standard of horticulture, small live-stock keeping, and the best use of produce in the home'.  Hence the original name the Holmer Green Village Produce Association.


Since then, the VPA has become a general gardening club organising shows, talks and outings on behalf of its members as well as operating a busy Trading Store.
