Discussion on Victory Gardens (virtual)
August 31 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Virtual discussion hosted by the FDR Library in Hyde Park • It has been said that an army travels on its stomach, and never was this more true than during the dark days of WWII. FDR Library Education Specialist Jeffrey Urbin examines the unprecedented contributions made by millions of ordinary Americans who fought the war literally in their own backyards growing food for themselves, the army, and our allies in small plots known as Victory Gardens. Live Q&A in the Facebook comments and YouTube chat, following the presentation. • Stream live on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook
