Victory Gardens 2008+ is a pilot project funded by the City of San
Francisco to support the transition of backyard, front yard, window
boxes, rooftops, and unused land into organic food production areas. The SF Victory Garden program builds on the successful Victory Garden programs of WWI and WWII but redefines "Victory" in the pressing context of urban sustainability. "Victory" is growing food at home for increased local food security and reducing the food miles associated with the average American meal.
In 2008 we choose 15 households that represented the diversity of
San Francisco to participate in the program. Candidates were chosen
regardless of income, ethnicity, available space, neighborhood,
gardening experience, or lifestyle.
The application process is closed for 2008.
