Berea Victory Garden Blitz

The annual Berea Victory Garden Blitz increases food security, builds community, and improves nutrition and health by providing raised garden beds at low cost primarily to low-income households. The event relies on about 120 volunteers who come together to build the beds, deliver them, and fill them with a compost and soil mix specifically formulated for raised beds.

 

The Blitz is supported by a wide range of donors whose generosity allows Sustainable Berea to subsidize the beds for households that cannot afford the full cost ($100). We believe that no household should be denied a bed because of the inability to pay the full amount. So far, the first six Blitzes have installed about 650 raised garden beds throughout Berea and its surroundings.

 

The seventh annual Berea Victory Garden Blitz is scheduled for April 3 and 4, 2020. The Blitz will conclude on Saturday with a community-wide potluck to celebrate the work of the volunteers and the enhanced capacity of the bed recipients to grow some of their own food. Local non-profits addressing food production are invited to participate in the Blitz Fair on Saturday morning.
