Grow Your Own

These war posters, encouraging people to plant victory gardens and preserve their own food so there would be enough to send to the troops, though pertinent during WWII, are just as relevant today for environmental conversation and saving money. With the recent resurgence of urban and home gardening, consumers are trying to work with what they have in order to survive this recession. I love that posters from 60+ years ago still have such a current message.
