The Historical Society has sponsored military programs about various wars. While the men were fighting the wars, what were the rest of the population doing at home? During World Wars I and II, the government encouraged people to grow their own vegetables as part of the war effort. Planting a garden was considered a patriotic duty. At first they were called “War Gardens”. By World War II, they had become known as “Victory Gardens”. Elaine Massa’s presentation will include photos and information about the gardens, the government programs offered at the time, and the results of those programs. Following the program, go home and start your own garden!
