Victory Gardens for Peace Growing Guide

A guide for your gardening journey.

Hello Gardener!

Did you know that less than 1% of our population knows how to grow a significant portion of their own diets?

There will again come a time where gardening is no longer a hobby, but a way of life. The focus of this booklet is to provide a methodology for gardening which is low-input, high yielding and sustainable. With resource scarcity already occurring and another 2 billion people projected to be on the planet in the next 30 years, it is essential that we move away from high input, energy intensive agriculture. A renaissance of the garden culture means a transition from the paradigm of doing less with more, to achieving more with less and a transformation of our own selves as we draw closer to the art of gardening through the hard work and love we experience as we participate directly in the give and take of nature – nurturing that which nurtures us- and rediscovering a sense of wholeness in ourselves and the world around us.

We hope that you find inspiration in this booklet and share the abundance with friends and family!
