Victory Garden Initiative
Full Episode – We join the Victory Garden Initiative on their annual Victory Garden Blitz. Then we join them four months later to celebrate in the terrific growing season.
In this episode of Wisconsin Foodie we meet up with Gretchen Mead, Founder of the Victory Garden Initiative. Gretchen started a program in Milwaukee, WI called the Victory Garden Blitz were volunteers spread throughout the city and create raised bed gardens to promote food growth in urban spaces, remincent of the WWII Victory Garden movement. Host Kyle Cherek helps Gretchen build gardens and meet the lucky folks recieving them. Then we catch up with Gretchen 4 months later to see the progress at the Victory Garden’s own urban farm, Concordia Gardens. Finally we wrap this thing up with a party “Farmraiser” to raise funds for Concordia Gardens.
