The 2023 Kitchen Garden Tour Winners
  • Kitchen gardeners don’t expect a lot of back-patting — but they deserve it. Every bite of food they grow is a bite that did not have to be shipped across the country or the world, that wasn’t sprayed with Round-up. Every person who gets to eat the food that comes out of a local garden is healthier for it, and more strongly connected to nature, to the gardener, and to the place we all live.

  • "This is where the revolution starts. Taking back and reconnecting with our land, our food, our health and our communities."
