Gardens of Honor

During World Wars I and II, people in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Germany planted Victory Gardens (also called war gardens or food gardens for defense) as a way to reduce the demand on the public food supply and support the war effort. Learn more about this civilian effort on the home front in The History of Victory Gardens.

Consider planting your own Victory Garden this Memorial Day weekend, in honor of those who served and those who are currently serving our country!
