Poster, color, 19 x 26. in., published by the United States Government Printing Office Victory gardens were small vegetable gardens that were planted soon after rationing began, during WWII, to ensure an adequate food supply. The goal of the victory garden was to produce enough fresh vegetables during the summer for your immediate family and neighbors, to take the place of food items rationed by the government. Excess produce was canned or preserved to last through the winter. Planting a victory garden was one way for civilians to show their support for the war effort.
