In popular imagination, Victory Gardens are often associated with civilian efforts during World Wars I & II. With the waning interest in gardening in the years after WWII, did these gardens ever really go away? Discussion will place Victory Gardens in a larger social context, explore the roots of the return to gardening and challenges to such efforts and highlight the victories communities can claim in their efforts to achieve self-determination. Discussion will be followed by flower arrangement demonstrations.
This program is co-sponsored by Derek Thomas Landscapes.
