And this last photo, shows just one of the gardens grown in Monroe during WWI for the war effort. https://www.loc.gov/item/2017667718/
The article I cited in yesterday’s post, also talked about the children’s war gardens that had popped up all over town.
News Star, September 21, 1918: The boys and girls have over two hundred war gardens which they work themselves.
Wow! Great job kids!
One thought on “Victory Gardens in Monroe During WWI”
Really interesting website. I grew up in Sterlington in the 70s and live in DC. Monroe was an enjoyable place when I grew up. thanks for the memories
