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.
As spring nears, nothing can beat the unbridled joy that comes from getting outside, working the soil, and planting seeds. We're thrilled at the thought of baby green shoots emerging from the ground, and growing and spreading, healthy and strong. And we hope that our insect helpers, the pollinators, will return to visit those flowers and pollinate our crops. Without the bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, and birds, there would be no fruits and veggies for our tables later in the season.
