Exhibit 1. The Time of the Garden: Government-Endorsed Gardening Past and Present

The purpose of this exhibit is to explore the continuity of the policy of government-endorsed gardening. The exhibit is broken up into two different sections. The first section of the exhibit focuses on the most successful period of government- endorsed gardening and emphasizes the political push behind the World War II victory garden. The second section of the exhibit explores the way that the government continues to encourage gardening in our current day.
