10.10.10 Victory Garden Challenge
Saturday, 9 October, 2010 - 10:00 - 17:00
All across the nation people are converting their landscapes, vacant lots and other spaces into thriving and productive food gardens. You can too!
Landscapes will be transformed into bountiful Victory Gardens, which uses water wisely to grow food all while educating and empowering community and supporting local businesses. This can be as simple as planting a fruit tree or a tomato plant in a pot. But it is also an opportunity to create innovative gardens on front yards, apartment patios, school and church grounds, and business premises while being water-wise. We use the term "water-wise" to emphasize the need to conserve water in all aspects of life including as we increase local food production.
We're working with the residents and community gardens in Berkeley to Get to Work in the garden. If you'd like us to present to your neighbors our "Signs of Global Warming in the Garden - Solutions" at your garden; let us know.
