At a critical moment in history, let’s value our health before it is gone! We believe in the power of food anchored in seed and soil.  When people come together – even in spirit – together we grow together and build resilient communities and help the “war” effort by fortifying the body with good health, decreasing stress by digging in the garden and sourcing from family farms who work hard to feed you and opting out of processed food that only supports big food and big ag corporate agendas!  In 2014 we built a ♥️Victory Garden @empirefarmny opened with Alice Waters, inspired by community & self reliance, by growing fresh organic vegetables for #youth #education

Victory Gardens ♥️First promoted during World War I, war gardening, or victory gardens, provided American citizens an opportunity to assist with the war effort. Americans were encouraged to produce their own food, planting vegetable gardens in their backyards, churchyards, city parks, and playgrounds. During World War II, Victory Gardens were planted by families in the United States (the Home Front) to help prevent a food shortage.

 

This meant food for everyone! Planting Victory Gardens helped make sure that there was enough food for our soldiers fighting around the world. Amid protests from the Department of Agriculture, Eleanor Roosevelt even planted a victory garden on the White House lawn.

Some of the most popular produce grown included beans, beets, cabbage, carrots, kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, peas, tomatoes, turnips, squash and Swiss chard. As part of the war effort, the government rationed foods like sugar, butter, milk, cheese, eggs, coffee, meat and canned goods. … So, the government turned to its citizens and encouraged them to plant “Victory Gardens.” ♥️They wanted individuals to provide their own fruits and vegetables. So, the government turned to its citizens and encouraged them to plant “Victory Gardens.” They wanted individuals to provide their own fruits and vegetables. Nearly 20 million Americans answered the call. … Families were encouraged to can their own vegetables to save commercial canned goods for the troops. Victory gardens, also called war gardens or food gardens for defense, were vegetable, fruit, and herb gardens planted at private homes♥️

 

During WWII, 41% of vegetables were produced from 20 million home gardens – known as Victory Gardens, including over 12million in cities which produced over 16 million pounds of food.

"Building reliance in the face of uncertainty is crucial - resilience in local and regenerative farms, in our own front yards and in the food that we eat. Let this be our greatest moment."

“Right now this seems so vital. It was put out by the government 100 years ago around the time of the pandemic in 1917. We responded by planting Victory Gardens. We can do it again like we did back then.”
