Webinar #6 - Victory Gardens Then and Now

Some have compared this new boom to gardening to the WWII era Victory Garden Movement. How is it similar? And how is it different? What to Victory Gardens-or their modern day equivalents look like in communities? What resources does the UC Master Gardener Program offer that can help new gardeners as they learn to grow? Register Here
