A partnership between Redden Gardens, The Center for Great Neighbrhoods of Covington and the Civic Garden Center, the Covington Victory Gardens started in 2020 as a response to the Covid Epidemic. By partnering mentor gardeners with their neighbors, the program intended to share neighborhood knowledge about vegetable gardening by providing raised beds or container gardens.
The 2020 season involved 15 households and 4 mentor gardeners. The gardens were set up directly at the homes in the best areas to grow depending on the individual situation. Why the majority used raised beds on ground or concrete, a few families used 5 gallon buckets on porches and balconies.
