Volunteers from CASE and CNH Industrial take part in the 2015 Victory Garden Blitz.

The Victory Garden Initiative held its 7th Annual Victory Garden Blitz from May 3-23. With 300 volunteers, the Victory Garden Initiative installed more than 500 raised-bed gardens at homes, community centers and businesses throughout the greater Milwaukee area. Upon completion of this year’s event, the total number of gardens will be nearly 2,500.

Case Construction Equipment and CNH Industrial are two partners of the Victory Garden Blitz. Employees from both the CASE offices in Racine, Wis., and the CNH Industrial offices in Burr Ridge, Ill., participated.

The Milwaukee-based Victory Garden crew expanded its involvement this year by training teams in Berea, Ky., and Green Bay, Wis., to run their own Victory Garden Blitz, resulting in almost 400 gardens built throughout their communities.

“Giving back to the community is a core principle for all of us at Case,” said Jim Hasler, vice president of Case Construction Equipment North America. “We are always amazed at the efforts and the positive impact the Victory Garden Initiative has on our community.”

In addition to volunteering for the Victory Garden Initiative, the manufacturer donated the use of an SV300 skid steer for the event.

The gardens are made possible with a $160 donation or sponsorship. Each garden is 4 feet by 8 feet, and includes installation and new soil from local composters.
