Planting Seeds for Success: Promoting Community and Victory Gardens

Join IAPD and our panel of experts: Sean Ruane, Executive Director of Advocates for Urban Agriculture; Sarah Vogel, Extension Educator, Horticulture and Natural Resources for the University of Illinois Extension; and Pam Otto, Outreach Ambassador at the St. Charles Park District at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 28 for this insightful webinar. 

COVID-19 restrictions have limited the programs and services that park, recreation and conservation agencies can offer.  Community and Victory Gardens are viable program options that can be facilitated for your residents now, and beyond the pandemic.

Get all the ‘dirt’ including:

  • The history and purpose of Community Gardens and Victory Gardens
  • How to create successful Community Garden program at your agency with tips for social distancing guidelines.
  • Learn how to assist residents in starting Victory Gardens and establishing communication strategies to keep them informed on best practices for success from planting to harvesting.
