Eat What You Grow & Grow What You Eat!
That's the battle cry of the Modern Victory Garden. The self-sufficiency of previous generations who planted victory gardens in their front and backyards as a means to support their nation’s war efforts is now a declaration of independence from corporate control of our food.
Cultivation of a more healthy and nutritious diet starts at the garden, no where else. That's the meaning of "modern victory garden". It is all about taking back responsibility and control of our own food supply. Whether it is a modest container of tomatoes on a patio deck or a full fledged self-sufficient garden - all efforts represent one step towards freeing ourselves from the forces that would keep us dependent on a system of petroleum fueled and factory farmed food.
Growing more of our own food heightens the taste and nutrition of meals and along the way we experience the empowerment and fulfillment that comes from learning the basic skills of providing for our families and ourselves.
Start a modern victory garden soon, start it today.
