Registration for the 2016 Blitz is Open!


The Great Milwaukee Victory Garden BLITZ is the NATION'S LARGEST GARDEN-BUILDING EVENT! Each year over 300 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 2015, we built 499 gardens in two weeks, bringing our grand total to over 2,500 gardens across Milwaukee and beyond!

The 2016 Blitz is May 7-21, 2016. More information at the links below:

Victory Garden Initiative builds communities that grow their own food, creating a community-based, socially just, environmentally sustainable, nutritious food system for all.
