While at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show in Seattle last week, I came across a wonderful booth in the Marketplace area and wanted to share it with you.
The name of the business is Victory Garden of Tomorrow, which is owned by Joe Wirtheim. Joe is an illustrator who has designed, as he puts it, "posters and usable goods for families, teachers, gardeners and all those working to change the world."
Joe explained to me that Victory Garden of Tomorrow is "an all-original propaganda campaign for chickens, food, and gardens... to help people stay empowered and stay in touch with a healthy lifestyle."
What drew me into his booth were the colorful, vintage-style signs and posters with messages like "We have a Victory Garden," "Eat Great Things," "Pickle Dreamin'" and "Thrifty for Victory."
Joe also designed some really cool-looking "bandannas for Victory Gardeners." There are embroidered badges (with messages such as "Break New Ground" and "Victory Garden of Tomorrow") and flour-sack towels that also carry these attractive designs. One of them has chickens on it and the caption is "You gonna eat that?" as a way to promote raising chickens on kitchen scraps.
Any of these items would look great in your home or garden, and make fabulous, welcome gifts for gardening friends.
So this is definitely worth checking out, folks! You can find Joe's website at victorygardenoftomorrow.com. Also, he says you can get 10% off your order if you use the promo code of "tenoff." Such a deal!
