About

Victory Gardens is about building a sense of community, reducing food miles, growing tasty food, getting people’s hands dirty, and reconnecting with the environment in a positive and fulfilling way.

Victory Gardens was established in September 2013, as a vehicle to activate otherwise unproductive spaces for the purposes of urban farming.

We provide easy care and easy access gardening solutions to help you take advantage of the spaces you have to grow food that tastes good, that also hasn’t had to travel round the globe to reach your plate!

The name Victory Gardens, was derived from war time when citizens were encouraged to establish a victory garden at home or in a public place to alleviate food shortages. The reinvigoration of the concept of a victory garden engenders a nostalgia for the resourcefulness of yesteryear as we tackle the post modern challenge of sustainability and biodiversity in an urban landscape.
