Victory Garden Initiative

About Victory Garden Initiative

Victory Garden Initiative buils communities that grow their own food to create a community-based, socially just, ecologically sustainable, nutritious food system for all. Our slogan is: “This is a grassroots movement. Move grass. Grow food.”, and we implement this through the following programs:
Great Milwaukee Victory Garden BLITZ, Victory Garden Urban Farm, Food Leader Certificate Program, YEP! Youth Education and FarmStand Program, Fruity Nutty Five Orchard Contest, and Volunteer and Intern Engagement Program. Through these programs and more, VGI is able to bring communities together to teach them how to grow food and supply them with the means to create their own sustainable community.

“It was great to spend the summer working outdoors and I learned many useful gardening skills that I hope to use in the future. The people that work here, as well as the volunteers that come through, are all wonderful and make working here worthwhile on their own.”
