Join AUSVEG SA today

AUSVEG SA membership is open to all growers throughout South Australia and we welcome engagement as we work to grow the vegetable and broader horticulture sector in our state.

Membership is free for growers who would like to sign up as members of the association. Rather than charge growers membership we instead ask that they take time to attend our events, provide in kind support to key initiatives which help the industry and support the companies who support AUSVEG SA to continue to act as a leading advocate for industry. It is through this model we have been able to build a strong grassroots base of support, get key runs on the board for industry and give back to industry.

Under this innovative model, AUSVEG SA continues to grow our programs and capabilities and wants even more growers to join us as we work to increase the support we can provide to industry.

Why join?

Having an effective and well resourced advocacy organisation is important when things go wrong in business. Constant regulatory changes and pressures from competing interests like unions mean that industry needs an effective seat at the table with government. AUSVEG SA has the staffing, expertise and national links with like-minded organisations to deliver on behalf of local industry. Employees often are part of a union, so it is important that businesses like horticultural enterprises need somewhere to go when need arises. At AUSVEG SA we are passionate about working for industry and want to advocate for growers in times of need.
