After building nearly 3,000 gardens throughout the South Puget Sound over the past 20+years, I reckon most of you know a thing or two about the Kitchen Garden Project. We partner with individuals, families, tribes, schools, organizations and businesses to build gardens so that our community can dig in together and grow good food. Over the years, we’ve been asked hundreds of times, why don’t you use a screw gun to put these raised bed boxes together? Couldn’t this be done more efficiently? The answer is simple. By working together, side by side, as learners, builders & growers, slowly hammering away at each frame, our community grows together. And this is one important reason we are folding the Kitchen Garden Project and Victory Farmers into one more fertile and integrated program. But the KGP has deep roots in community food security & veteran integration, and here at GRuB, we value honoring the past as much as we strive to cultivate a thriving future together with our community.
