The intention of this manual is to capture the big picture and current best practices of the Victory Garden Project* as it is practiced at Garden Raised Bounty (GRuB) in Olympia, WA. It is being presented for other individuals and organizations interested in pursuing similar programs in their communities. Our garden building program is ever-evolving. What is written here (in 2020) may or may not be the best way to do things next year or five years from now, or in a different area. That said, it is a great place to begin, and there is no need to recreate the wheel! Here you will find some history, a timeline, month-by-month breakdowns, and specific information about most aspects of implementing this program.
