On the weekend of May 14-15, the Victory Garden Foundation, Inc. is hosting a challenge to transform 350 landscapes, vacant lots, and other spaces into productive food gardens. Planting your victory garden can be as simple as planting a fruit tree or a tomato plant, or as grand as planting a 2,000 square-foot water-wise and pollinator-friendly native landscape in front of your church. Either way, it’s an opportunity to unite the members of your community!
Register your edible gardens by April 23 to be eligible in the East Bay to receive compost and mulch for a 3 x 3 edible garden (while supplies last); receive vegetable, herb, and flower seeds for your garden; and request a volunteer work crew to help at your garden site. In addition, volunteers are needed to register gardens, match host gardens with work crews, recruit work crews, and distribute giveaways. For more information, go to www.victorygardenfoundation.org.
