In 2011, the Foundation for Building Sustainable Communities (FBSC) initiated its Food and Agriculture Programme to grow food for donations to local food banks by creating a demonstration site. From the very beinning, it became extremely clear that the lack of farming and gardening skills was very low. To encourage community participation, a volunteer training program was developed using the Victory Garden because of its proven results for food & nutrition security in both World Wars.
A Timely Solution
FBSC developed the Climate Smart Victory Garden Training Program to implement its mandate of preserving & repairing the environment, and to ameliorate the living conditions of the underprivileged. The Climate Smart Victory Garden (CSVG) is a social, environment and economic Education Programme for community members to learn and lead a sustainable and healthy lifestyle, protect the environment, and connect with each other for social belonging. The Program’s goal is to build self sufficiency and local prosperity that can be replicated in many communities worldwide. While it is based on the historic British Dig In civic engagement and food security campaign, the CSVG also integrate the issues of climate change, off-grid technological solutions, nutrition security, the Sustainable Development Goals, and Entrepreneurship
The Climate Smart Victory Gardens is responsive to the Food Summit Tracks goals and objectives and will create a Food Knowledge Hub to:
