The LA Victory Garden Project

What is a victory garden? Historically, a Victory Garden was a wartime vegetable garden developed to increase food production—especially by home gardeners. Farm LA’s take is simply a space to supplement your and your neighbors’ groceries and boost morale and build community. We’ve been doing this since 2014, on sidewalks or a vacant piece of land. Now it’s time to rally the community we’ve so lovingly built to help activate Angelenos all over LA in growing food for themselves and their neighbors.

Please know that we take gardening and privacy very seriously. We will not share anything here except your first name and ZIP code. After registering, fellow gardeners can contact you by clicking on the message icon, but they won’t see your email address unless you reply to their message. We’re encouraging you all to do your own vetting, share your social media/linkedin profiles, and pictures of the space you have in mind, and schedule a zoom first so you can get to know one another and discuss how you won’t be using pesticides, your individual skillsets and capabilities before meeting up.
