The Victory Garden
Supporting Newtown’s Food Pantries
Your help is needed to produce fresh produce to the food pantries in Newtown.

The food pantries provide food to over 2000 residents of Newtown. The pantries are exclusively for the use of Newtown
residents. Presently most of these foods are canned, dried or frozen. Last season the Victory Garden provided over 2,834
pounds of produce to the food pantries. The estimated dollar value of the produce was $5258.84. It is again the goal of
the Victory Gardeners to provide fresh, healthy produce to our neediest families. The Victory Garden is located in
Fairfield Hills and is supported by the Town of Newtown and the Newtown Parks and Recreation Department.

How you can help?

Donate: All donations are made through The Parks and Recreation Department: Park Gift Fund, memo: Victory Garden.

Volunteer your time:

•    Own a row - you or you and your team can plant, cultivate and harvest a row in the garden. The
     produce will go directly to the food pantries. Share the work with a team, learn from each other and other
     teams.
•    Help with the garden preparation and planning.
•    Are you an experienced vegetable gardener? Teach novice gardeners and students. Hold a workshop or class at the
     garden.
•     Students needing volunteer hours are welcome along with Girls Scouts and Eagle Scouts projects.
•     No time to commit to owning a row? The uncommitted can garden without owning a row but help others with
     community or shared rows.

To sign up to “own a row”, or to help in other ways contact Harvey Pessin email: harve9@yahoo.com.

challenges as peak oil, climate change, and the economic crisis. It represents one of the most promising ways of engag-
ing people in strengthening their communities against the effects of these challenges, resulting in life that is more
fulfilling, equitable, and socially connected. Transition Initiatives engage their communities in home grown, citizen led
education, action,and planning to increase local self reliance and resilience. Now is the time for us to start re-creating
our future in ways that are based on localized food, sustainable energy sources, resilient local economies and an enliv-
ened sense of community weel being.
