Victory Gardens

Victory Gardens, also called war gardens or food gardens for defense, were vegetable, fruit, and herb gardens planted at private residences and public parks in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and Germany during both of the major world wars.

They were used along with Rationing Stamps and Cards to reduce pressure on the public food supply. Besides indirectly aiding the war effort, these gardens were also considered a civil “morale booster” in that gardeners could feel empowered by their contribution of labor and rewarded by the produce grown.

This made victory gardens a part of daily life on the home front. Check out this throwback victory garden plan to help feed a family of 5 people. It’s something you might like to use to help plan your own garden to help save money & grow your own fresh produce…
