The Co-op Victory Garden is located within the Tommy Thompson Community Garden, at the Intervale, in Burlington. A variety of vegetables, culinary & medicinal herbs, cutting flowers, and small fruits are grown for co-op members in a 2,000 square foot plot. The Vermont Community Garden Network manages the program with the goal of establishing a living example of a collectively tended garden where intensive growing techniques, shared resources, and a mentorship program enable more people to grow nourishing food, together.
All co-op members work in exchange for seasonal garden harvest. Members are also invited to monthly make-and-take workshops in food preservation and herbalism to learn how to process garden harvest to stock their pantry and medicine cabinet
