Together we can sow the seeds of Victory

What are Victory Gardens?

Blossoming during the World Wars, victory gardens were home-grown gardens that helped civilians provide for their families as well as the soldiers overseas. These victory gardens became a way for every American to help their neighbor and nation during a national emergency.

By the end of World War II, home grown vegetables were 40% of the produce grown in the United States. The US alone was home to over 20 million victory gardens, making a significant impact during a worldwide crisis.
