Victory garden workshop for kids

Millions of Americans grew victory gardens during WWII to supplement their wartime rations and help spur victory. Children ages 6 to 12 can learn about that effort at a workshop on Saturday, June 23, from 11 to 12:30, at Wilton Historical Society, 224 Danbury Road.

Easy-to-grow vegetables such as tomatoes, carrots, lettuce, beets, peas, Swiss chard and kohlrabi made their way onto dinner tables.

During the workshop, the children will plant seedlings in the society’s victory garden, and can help maintain their plantings through the summer. They will help prepare their own snack, pesto bruschetta.

The cost for society members is $10 per child, maximum $25 per family; non-members: $15 per child, maximum $35 per family. Register at or call 203-762-7257.
