The WWII Victory Garden Sign stakes your spot for patriotism. The sign lets everyone know that you support your country during the time of war, by growing fruits and vegetables as per the government-sponsored project. The Victory Garden Sign is made of aluminum metal.
Victory gardens were encouraged on both sides of the pond. Government programs gave away free seeds to those interested in growing their own gardens and offered booklets and instructions on how to cultivate vegetable plants even on a tiny plot of land. Anything grown in a victory garden was exempt from rationing and did not require ration points, which made them popular.
WWII created a shortage of fresh fruit and vegetables due to a dramatic increase in canned goods. Canned goods were sent not just to soldiers overseas but also to our Allies where food supplies had been tainted by bombing and U-boat attacks.
