Resurrecting the Victory Garden – A Chicago Community Gardening Story – Feb 8 at 7pm

Please join the P-Patch Community Gardening Program and the 2013 American Community Gardening Association (ACGA) Seattle Conference Committee as we explore how a new community garden helped one  Chicago neighborhood discover the Victory Garden in its backyard.   LaManda Joy, edible gardening advocate and ACGA board member, leads us on the journey that connects her modern community garden with its historical roots and tells the tale of the WWII Victory Garden movement.   

This presentation is offered FREE on February 8 at 7pm at the Swedish Cultural Center, 1920 Dexter Ave North on the east side of Queen Anne.   Served by the #28 or #26 buses.
