What is a Victory Garden?

During WWI and WWII, the government rationed foods such as sugar, butter, milk, eggs, coffee, meat and canned goods. Lack of labor and transportation made it hard to harvest food from the farms and get it to market. So, citizens were encouraged to plant "VICTORY GARDENS" to provide their own fruits and vegetables.

Nearly 20 million Americans answered the call! They planted gardens in backyards, empty lots and even rooftops. The Durham Bulls are carrying on the VICTORY GARDEN tradition today, in partnership with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina and Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, by growing fresh, local food for our community.
