Victory Garden event

Thursday, May 11, 6pm – Sonoma County Museum – Special Event 

War gardening, or victory gardens, was first promoted in WWI, as a means for people to produce more food and consume less, leaving the bulk of the country’s harvests available for shipping to the troops and to Europe. Citizens were encouraged to grow food on all unused land, including parks, schools, backyards and vacant lots.

Growing your own vegetables has recently gained in popularity, and there are many 21st century techniques and tools for the home gardeners. In this presentation Cynthia Leung will explore many of the new available methods from seed-starting to harvest for the home gardener and will give her own personal take on growing vegetables in a small space. Included are recipes for making your own potting soil and your own fertilizer mixes, as well as time-saving and organic techniques.

Roads proposed to be closed along the IRONMAN 70.3 bike course will be considered soft closures, meaning vehicle traffic will be allowed to flow in both directions within the closure IF it originates from within the closed area. Additional traffic from outside the closed area will be directed to use detours. The goal of these closures is to reduce overall traffic conflicts and improve the safety for the motoring public and athletes.
