Victory Gardens were first planted over a century ago during wartime to promote independence, food security and healthy eating. The concept returned in the last couple of years as an approach individuals can take to address climate change.
With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic the concept continues to catch the attention of many.
Learn how a victory garden can support local sustainability and resilience and tips for how to grow your first victory garden.
