The Pacific Giant Vegetable Growers (PGVG) is first and foremost an association of gardeners. Our purpose is to promote and encourage the hobby of gardening with a focus placed on the fun of competition and the production of obscenely large healthy vegetables, with an emphasis on pumpkins, as well as recognition of all fruits and vegetables on the international competition list defined by the Great Pumpkin Commonwealth (GPC). We will, to the best of our ability, treat each and every member equally and fairly. We will listen to concerns of our members and strive for resolutions to problems. We will continue to improve our organization for the benefit of our members. We will share gardening tips and information and help to encourage new members and new gardeners. We will encourage individuals and families to enjoy gardening together. The hobby of gardening should be fulfilling, rewarding and above all fun for everyone involved. This is our intent and our mission.
