Plant Your Victory Garden With Us!
We are very excited to share our “Victory Garden in a Tray” Initiative with you!
Launched in the spirit of Victory Gardens planted during both World War I and World War II—when people banded together for the common good and planted gardens across the country—this is a great way to reconnect with the land and local food through growing some of your own!
Farm Table and Hungry Turtle Farm instructors will provide weekly video instruction to support you as your garden grows. To get you started, Dragonfly Gardens is offering a “Victory Garden in a Tray” comprised of approximately 48 vegetable starts for $30 (quantities are limited). Of course, anyone can participate in the video tutorials, no matter how or where you get your starts.**
Here’s how it will work:
- Purchase your “Victory Garden in a Tray” here.
- Pick up your tray of veggie starts at Farm Table in Amery. Date is to be determined, depending on weather, but May 16 is the goal. We will email you to let you know.
- Bring your starts home, get them in the ground, and begin nurturing your garden.
- Join us for the video tutorials with Hungry Turtle Farm and Farm Table instructors. We will email you when those are scheduled, but they will begin soon, before you pick your trays up, in order to help you prepare your garden space.
Again, quantities are limited, so get your order in soon. Here is the link to purchase your tray again.
(As mentioned, if you don’t live that close to Dragonfly Gardens, get your veggie starts elsewhere and still join in on the video tutorials.)
Thank you to our partners: Dragonfly Gardens and Hungry Turtle Farm!
** Though the list of veggie starts is still to be finalized, the trays will likely include:
- Slicer tomatoes
- Cherry tomatoes
- Bell peppers
- Acorn squash
- Parsley or cilantro
- Bean seeds
