Flashback: Victory Gardens Sweep San Diego

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 29 July , 2015

When you hear the term “Victory Garden” do you immediately flashback to World War II and school children diligently tending their vegetable patches to do their part in the war effort? It is likely that this is what most people think of when they hear the term, popularized by the Allies in the 1940s. At that time, even urban dwellers tried to grow as much food as possible to limit the number of trucks that had to carry produce far and wide, making more fuel available to the men and women on the front lines.

Now, San Diego residents are building a new type of Victory Garden: one that helps neighbors collaborate and grow their own food in the “war” against high produce prices and the use of chemicals and pesticides. Juniper Landscape Company in San Diego is excited to share this news with those who are interested in learning more about home gardening.

What Is A Victory Garden?

Today’s version of a Victory Garden is usually a collaborative or team effort started voluntarily by some group, whether it is neighbors, family members, a church group or a social club. All that is needed to grow a Victory Garden is a willingness to learn and some time commitment. No matter how small the space, groups can find ways, such as vertical gardening, to squeeze in a Victory Garden.

Victory Gardens San Diego is a group that provides free courses at a number of sites throughout San Diego to help those who want to learn more about gardening. These courses are part of a large curriculum, so those who attend should make an effort to be present at every class.

The courses are built around student’s needs, so a group or organization can easily schedule classes on certain topics, type of plants or any other subject they choose.

There are plenty of Victory Garden projects available throughout San Diego, and many of the groups who participate started with a very small garden that has since grown in size. Some of these collaborative efforts give those who want a taste of gardening the exposure they need, while others have grown to the point that they can provide food for several families.

Juniper Landscape Company supports all collaborative gardening efforts by providing information whenever possible to those interested. Collaborative gardening can be an easy way to meet new friends as well as create a great and productive garden area.

  • Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
