Victory gardens in New York City photo from Edible Schoolyard - A Universal Idea by Alice Waters

During World War II victory gardens were being made all over the US, to spread hope, and share food with those who lost money and jobs. The gardens were in neighborhoods and especially in schools. The children often participated in the gardens and got exercise and nutrition because many people could not afford to buy food from the stores. These were community gardens.
