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.
Whether it's fairy gardens, lunchbox peppers, dollhouse furniture, or baby animals - everyone loves tiny things! How about growing a tiny garden right on your windowsill? Miniature salads are called microgreens and they are super simple to grow. No matter how old you are, everyone should give it a try. The prefix "micro" means tiny and the word "greens" hints that you're eating the leafy part of the plant. Microgreens are different from sprouts - sprouts grow in a watery environment and microgreens are actually planted in soil. Learn how to grow these easy and nutritious greens in your home.
