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:
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 email@example.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.
