VPA The Village Produce Association was part of a county-wide affiliation of gardening clubs, all of which had strong links with the Agricultural College at Usk. The year (2000) saw the County Organisation close down due to there being insufficient interest in running the organisation among the participating VPAs. However, the Tintern VPA has an active membership and continues to operate independently within the village.

We organise a programme of monthly meetings using speakers who talk on gardening or local topics in the main, usually with slides as a visual aid. We also run an annual Produce Show in August in the Village Hall. In addition, we have 'adopted' a few areas of the village which are now planted and maintained by us and, we hope, give pleasure to both locals and visitors.
