2 Gardening for Good: Victory Gardens to Solidarity Gardens
In times of crisis throughout history Champaign County's community gardens have served a dual purpose - providing healthy food and building a sense of unity and care. Katie Snyder of the Museum of the Grand Prairie will tell us about the surprising history of Victory Gardens in Champaign County, a tradition that goes back over a century.
We'll also learn about Solidarity Gardens with Traci Barkley and MJ Oviatt of Sola Gratia Farm. Solidarity Gardens is the new local community gardening initiative that brings together our schools, park districts, farmers, the Cunningham Township and more. The Urbana Free Library is proud to support this initiative with our very own Seed Library.
