Victory Gardens in Monroe During WWI

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!
