The Great Milwaukee 

Victory Garden


May 9th - 23rd, 2015

Each year during the Great Milwaukee Victory Garden Blitz, Victory Garden Initiative volunteers install hundreds of raised beds gardens in backyards, front yards, schools, community centers, and places of worship - just about anywhere you can imagine!

It all started with a group of friends in 2009. Together, they installed 35 raised bed gardens in a SINGLE DAY, serendipitously launching Victory Garden Initiative! In 2014, we built a record-breaking 548 gardens in two weeks.  Start growing food in your community in 2015!


   Give the Gift of Gardens this year for the Holidays! 

:: Treat a loved one & support your community

:: Buy a 4 ft x 8 ft raised bed garden with Purple Cow Organic Soil

Register for a 4' by 8' raised bed garden at the bulk rate of only $160,  fully installed by our volunteers and filled with new soil from our local compost partners to get your season off on the right foot.
