The Victory Garden is a cooperative partnership designed to strengthen the local community by providing fresh produce as well as education in nutrition, environmental sustainability and training in micro-enterprise.

Those impacted include community members living in poverty, adolescents aging out foster care, seniors, veterans and people with disabilities.

Poverty levels in Lake County range from 17% to 37%. The need in the over 65 population continues to grow at an alarming rate.

These poverty levels are spread amongst the elderly, disabled and families of all ages.
