The Blitz is a one-day orchestration of volunteers and resources to install as many food producing gardens as possible in one day. Make sure to sign up now!


Join us on Blitz Day, Saturday, May 28th, 2011, while we create a more sustainable, just and nutritious food system through the act of growing food.  Here are three ways to get involved:

Garden! You can have your own 4X8 foot raised bed garden (12 inches deep) installed, complete with high quality organic soil for only $125! Contact blitz@VictoryGardenInitiative.org to order a bed.

Volunteer! You can join us as we install hundreds of gardens throughout the city.  Bring your muscles, shovels, and trucks and your desire to create a new food system, by growing food.  Contact becky.grandone@gmail.com to volunteer.

Donate! Want to help, but can’t be involved that day?  Many people in Milwaukee dont have access to fresh veggies, and can’t afford to have a garden installed.  You can help change this with a tax deductible donation.  We will install gardens for free, and conduct on-going garden education with those who receive the gardens. To donate go to the websitewww.VictoryGardenInitiative.org or send checks to VGI/UEC 1700 E. Olive St. Shorewood, WI 53211.
