Victory Gardens have existed since WWI, but now there is a new species of Victory Park that is growing.
Climate Victory Gardens are very popular these days as a way to restore soil health to carbon. Like how Victory Gardens are positioned as a spiritual stimulant and to to supplement their diet, Climate Victory Gardens are being grown to help combat climate change. This is another way that people, organizations and businesses can make a difference – motivators are literally ‘gardens for climate’.
In 2021, interested citizens will be asked to join the movement by building Victory Climate Parks (large or small), which will then be included in the national map (add your garden).
For those with Climate Victory Garden Practice, they include prevention synthetic chemical store, compost, food cultivation, biodiversity promotion, plant remains, reducing water use, preventing erosion and protection of local water resources, planting perennial and domestic plants and using ‘people’s power’ on cars.
Try Climate Victory Gardens by nonprofit Green America, started three years ago and has grown rapidly since then. During the pandemic, the number of orchards tripled and there were no signs of slowing movement.
Buffalo already has an amazingly strong garden community. Now is the time to join a growing nationwide movement, even around the world.
