Victory Garden Display Garden

The Victory Garden team maintains a fenced-in public display garden at the entrance of the Victory Garden production space. The public garden area includes a more relaxed backyard style garden with beds for growing produce as well as flower beds designed to attract pollinators and other beneficial insects. The Victory Garden itself is not generally open to the public outside of guided tours.

Attracting Pollinators and Beneficial Insects

It is important to supply sufficient forage for pollinators and beneficial insects as a foundational element of any productive garden space. Not only does this improve the biodiversity of the space, it can be the first step in creating an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system. Flowers of all shapes, colors, and sizes can attract a plethora of pollinators, parasitoid wasps, and other beneficials to the garden and help to maintain a steady population to help pollinate veggie crops, and defend against pests. The display area includes two large pollinator garden beds on the outer southern corners.
