Nearly 20 million American’s were involved in planting Victory Gardens, or Food for Defense Gardens. These gardens, planted in backyeards, at retirement homes and schools as well as public spaces like Golden Gate Park i San Francisco, CA., provided up to 40% of all consumed, according to the NY Times, and provided a much-needed morale boost.
Today, most farmers have been absorbed by Big Ag, and children have little connection to their food or where it comes from. Fenway in Boston and Dowling in Minnesota are the last surviving original Victory Gardens, but many “cousins” have popped up as community gardens and schoolyard veggie patches. They provide needed education on gardening and wholesome living, as well as food independence and mental relaxation.
