Why

Consumption of good healthy food is key  to the health and well being of everyone. Unfortunately there is a growing population that does not have access to healthy food in America. During World War's One and Two, Victory Gardens were used to prevent food shortages. At their peak, there were 20 million Victory Gardens in the United States. Food shortages have not gone away and the impacted population consists of the very young to the elderly and every age group in between. Please adopt this proven method of helping and plant, grow, and donate.

How

  • Plan your garden
  • Make sure the dirt is suitable for planting (Please avoid using contaminated soil)
  • Vegetable rows should be placed from North to South to allow for maximum sunshine
  • Flat roof tops can be substituted for yard space
  • Make your garden a group effort
  • Spread the word; tell as many people as you can
  • If you already have a garden, add an extra row(s) to support Victory Garden 3.0 

Send us pictures of your garden in high quality pdf format, so that we can post them on our site
