Introducing the Victory Garden Project!
by Katie Rains
After building nearly 3,000 gardens throughout the South Puget Sound over the past 20+ years, I reckon most of you know a thing of two about the Kitchen Garden Project (KGP). We partner with individuals, families, tribes, schools, organizations and businesses to build gardens so that our community can dig in together and grow good food. Over the years, we've been asked hundreds of times, why don't you use a screw gun to put these raised bed boxes together? Couldn't this be done more efficiently? The answer is simple. By working together, side by side, as learners, builders & growers, slowly hammering away at each frame, our community grows together. And this is one important reason we are folding the Kitchen Garden Project and Victory Farmers into one more fertile and integrated program. But the KGP has deep roots in community food security & veteran integration, so please read more HERE.
Shop out at these participating businesses onMarch 23rd& they're generously donating a portion of their proceeds to GRuB. Don't forget to mention us when you shop out, dine out & GRuB out! For more information on participating businesses, check out ourEVENT PAGE.
