Description

This poster, titled "Grow Your Own," encourages Americans to create victory gardens during World War II. The poster measures19" x 21" (48.26 x 53.34 cm). During World War II (1941-1945), many people supplemented the food they had available for personal use by planting vegetable gardens, both to support the war effort and due to food shortages and rationing. The gardens were promoted widely by the government and industry, and were known as "victory gardens" due to their importance to the war effort. Gardens were planted during World War I as well, but were called "war gardens" until the endof the war, when the term "victory garden" came into use.
