8/28/08: The New Victory Garden
Salt Lake City, UT – During World War II, a grass-roots response to rationing took hold across the country. People began planting "victory" gardens, and this experiment in back yard farming would eventually produce almost half of the nation's food needs. Today, there's a movement to bring back the home garden to address modern day problems like climate change, the cost of energy and health issues. Thursday, we're talking about what new victory gardens could mean for individuals and for the country.
