May 2021, Reclaiming the Land and Building Community

Package of seeds received for our local seed hub through the Cooperative Garden Commission. #CoopGardens

We are excited to announce that Victory Gardens Lex was chosen as a seed distribution hub for the Cooperative Garden Commission. We received the seeds shown above at the end of April 2021. We have begun distribution through our community gardens initiative and will continue distribution in communities through Lexington and the local regional area.
