PLANET PROGRESS – Urban Earth Keepers: Victory Gardens


Uploaded on Jun 21, 2009

The Victory Garden movement is an old tradition to those Americans who were previously called upon to grow fruits and vegetables to aid in the food shortages of World War II. After many years of being dormant, the movement is resuming in a milieu of locations to decrease the dependence on mass-produced food, reduce our carbon footprint, and create an awareness of the foods were using to nourish our bodies. Nonprofit organizations like Garden for the Environment are emerging with a vision to inspire farming beyond the borders of countryside acres to parcels of land sprouting amid concrete backyards.
