Home and Community Victory Gardens produced 40% of the food during WWII when food rations were imposed due to the food supplies that were being sent to the troops. With home gardening, statistics have shown that simple vegetable gardening can address all of the factors listed above. 1 Tomato plant can produce 8-15 pounds of food. Each sqft of garden can yield over 1 lb of ground vegetables. A 10×10 garden can supplement up to $700 in grocery spending.
Funds raised will go to support the Healing Warriors Program suicide prevention through Free non-narcotic treatment programs for Veterans and their families suffering from PTSD, TBI, Trauma, Sleep Disorders and Pain.
