Home Security Workshop

AlarmKeypad

April 29, 10am
4400 Osseo Road North

Although crime in Victory continues to decrease, the prevalence of social media and other 24-hour news cycles can fuel the perception that crime is on the rise. Helping residents feel safe in their homes is of utmost importance to ViNA and for this reason, the organization, in partnership with the Minneapolis Police Department, offers regular Home Security Workshops.

The workshop will be led by a MPD crime prevention specialist and will provide homeowners and renters with tips on how to improve their home’s security. Light refreshments will be provided.

Attendance at the workshop may qualify attendees to apply for and receive a rebate from ViNA on security improvements completed by Victory residents. More information can be found on our homepage.

We’ll discuss plants and methods that work to create beautiful gardens. As urban gardeners we struggle with these challenges:

  • Animals – rabbits, squirrels, dogs
  • Uneven laws, sparse grass
  • Lack of privacy
  • Boulevards
  • Conditions under trees
  • Front-yard slopes
  • Growing vegetables in partial shade

Tiny Fields Application is Open

Harvest Photo

Applications are now open to participate in the 2017 Tiny Fields Project. The Tiny Fields Project teaches Victory residents to grow their own vegetable gardens by providing participants with a garden kit and other resources needed to successfully grow and harvest produce. Each kit includes enough seeds and seedlings to plant a 7ft x 12ft space with a variety of vegetables. Participants also receive assistance tilling their bed and get a beginner’s guide to vegetable gardening. Participants then use an active social media group for continued learning, garden tips, and recipes. Previous Tiny Fields participants have reported saving up to 40% on their weekly grocery bill during harvest and have shared that their children developed a love of gardening and eating vegetables after participating.

Tiny Fields are provided on a pay-what-you-can basis. Annually, the cost of growing a new Tiny Field is $55 and a returning Tiny Field is $25. Visit www.tinyfields.org to apply or to donate to the project.
