Victory Gardens became increasingly more popular during the Second World War producing bountiful yields for families living in urban and suburban settings. The interest in gardening is now resurging and we couldn’t be happier!
Gardening is not only a great way to feed your family healthy, organic food but it is excellent exercise, increases time outdoors, and can be fun for the whole family. Additionally, growing and preparing food builds connections whereby adults and children alike develop a keener sense of appreciation of where their food originates and all that is required to get it onto your plate. Gardening is for all! Join us on this month-long journey to learn more.
