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 Milwaukee. 2019 marked their 11th year of the Blitz and in total, they have installed over 4,500 gardens built across Milwaukee and beyond! Plus, there are other sister cities that do their own Blitz. Check out what is happening at Sustainable Berea in Berea, Kentucky and New Leaf Foods in Green Bay, Wisconsin! In the past six years, both organizations have installed over 650 garden beds each! Grow It Forward is thrilled to be joining the “Grow Your Own Food Movement!”
We're excited to announce Grow It Forward’s Garden Blitz boxes are now on sale now! Our volunteers will build, deliver, and install an 8’ x 4’ and 10” filled with high-quality soil for homes, schools, churches, libraries, shelters, or businesses within the City of Manitowoc only. Delivery and installation will take place May 14th – 17th, 2020.
