Program Description


Join the Portsmouth Public Library online this spring and summer for Habitats & Harvests, a series on gardening and native plants. Each presentation will be followed by Q&A! On Thursday May 6, we’ll host Acadia Tucker, author of Tiny Victory Gardens: Growing Good Food Without a Yard.

Cultivating your own food is a meaningful way to promote resilience in your household and, by sharing your knowledge—along with the fruits and vegetables of your labors—with neighbors, it can do the same for your community. But what if you don’t have a yard?

Container gardening allows just about anyone to grow a decent amount of food, no backyard required. While growing food in pots may not do as much to mitigate climate change as cultivating in backyard gardens, it can help us adapt to it by building stronger communities, supporting local pollinators, and expanding the reach of organic, regenerative agriculture.

In this session, we’ll talk about the tools and instructions needed to grow your own tiny victory garden both indoors and out. One that can supply you with as much, or as little, food as you’d like, grown in a way that helps the planet and builds more resilience into your life.

Registration is required. 

Acadia Tucker is a regenerative farmer, climate activist, and author. Her books are a call to action to citizen gardeners everywhere, and lay the groundwork for planting an organic, regenerative garden. For her, this is gardening as if our future depends on it.
