What is a Bucket Brigade?

Bucket Brigade is a vegetable container gardening project that rescues unwanted buckets and turns them into mini vegetable gardens for people who want to grow some of their own food.

Volunteers at Bucket Brigades teach people how to plant and seed vegetable containers and give them gardening resources and information to make their garden a success!

Since 2008, more than 1,200 people have taken home a Bucket Brigade container garden and seeds to keep their garden growing.

Hi, this is such a great idea. What a wonderful way to recycle those unwanted pots. I have a few around my house that I planted with Basil and lettuce this past summer and they grew just fine. I think this is a great project for all communities.

I want to become a volunteer! Sadly I live no where near you guys. But I will try to find a similar organization in my city. Great initiative.

Super cute Garden. Your blog is outrageous! I mean, Ive never been so entertained by anything in my life!
