You may have heard the term victory gardens before or have seen posters talking about them. Victory gardens were planted during the world wars to help feed local communities and troops. People were encouraged to plant gardens in any available spaces and share the harvest. This included public gardens, schoolyards, flowerbeds at commercial businesses and even in pots on patios. Everyone was encouraged to help and during the 1940s, these gardens helped produce 40% of all produce that was consumed in the United States. It also helped boost morale and patriotism.
How Can We Help Our Community?
We are committed to helping our community and are planning to switch some of our flowerbeds over to veggies for the Idaho Falls Community Food Basket. We are urging our local leaders to join us for their flowerbeds as well. We are also committed to teaching our community how they can grow to help each other out. We are in this together.
