How to Start a Victory Garden


Victory gardens are important part of United States’ history. They arose at a period when food scarcity was a very significant issue in the United States during World Wars I and II. Civilians were encouraged to “Grow for Victory” by growing and harvesting their own victory produce in order to reduce the amount of commercially manufactured food given to our troops. Because this was pre-Facebook, the word was disseminated through women’s groups and local groupings. The government distributed leaflets on how to maintain the war gardens as well as how to preserve and can food. As the war ended and food difficulties abated, so did people’s desire to continue farming in this manner.
