By placing dirt under our fingernails,
By offering a different posture than sitting, and
By filling our lungs with fresh air, our ears with birdsong, our eyes with beauty and perhaps even our bellies with food;
By creating daily opportunities for discovery and delight,
By giving us something to cherish and nurture,
By giving us appreciation for and patience with the seasons;
Our Dwelling Places
By creating spaces to learn and grow,
By centering the physical world rather than the world of screens, and
By providing witness to the victory of life;
By seeding CoVictory Gardens throughout our community,
By acknowledging that although we are physically isolated, we move through this season together, and
By welcoming others into wonderment;
Our Community, Country and World
By creating a source of connection,
By acknowledging history, and
By relating our endeavors into a globally connected effort.
We invite every Gardener to be a CoVictory Gardener, and every Garden to be a CoVictory Garden.
We celebrate the chance to nourish life, witness the seasons and see our place in the world, together, with our CoVictory Gardens.
Because CoVictory Gardens provide nourishment for us all.
