We help YOU grow FOOD!
Victory Gardens is a team of urban farmers for hire who specialize in transforming all types of urban space for food production. As no two spaces are the same, neither are the gardens grown. Victory Garden’s goal is to enable people to grow food by providing all the necessary educational tools and infrastructure for successful harvests.
With your own Victory Garden, you will decrease your impact on the environment, support your own local economy, create a healthy environment with organic food and participate in the movement towards new and sustainable food systems within our community.
The History behind “Victory Gardens”
The inspiration for our name -Victory Gardens- plays off the WWI and WWII era campaigns that encouraged the public to utilize residential space around them for food production. People unified around a common goal to work together as a community to become more self-sustained. A resounding sense of camaraderie prevailed among the people that participated in this movement instilling a sense of pride and contribution towards one’s community.
Victory Gardens were as important then as they are today, so be a food hero and grow your own!
