WWII Victory Gardens  at Fruitville Public  Library

February 20, 2013 at 3:30 p.m.

This program will by presented  by Stacy Spriggs of the Cooperative Extension Service.

Victory gardens,  also  called  war gardens  were vegetable,  fruit and herb gardens planted at private residences  and public parks in the United  States,  United  Kingdom,  Canada  and Germany during World War I and World War II. These  gardens  in addition  to supplementing  the nation’s  food  supply were also  considered  a civil “morale  booster” — in that gardeners could feel empowered by their contribution of labor and rewarded by the produce grown.

This program is part of several programs being  presented  as part of the One  Book One  Community selection,  Unbroken, by

Laura Hillenbrand.
