As far back as World War I, there were liberty and war gardens. Relief Gardens sprung up during the Great Depression. And, Victory Gardens began during World War II. In all eras, gardens to grow food were started in answer to economic difficulties. Now, in the 21st century, claiming home space and public land to grow Victory Gardens is again answering not only economic difficulties; but a solution to healthy eating.
