Victory Garden

Victory gardens were vegetable, fruit and herb gardens planted at private residences and public parks in the United States during World War I and World War II to reduce the pressure on the public food supply brought on by the war effort.

Arroyo Grande In Bloom volunteers have planted two Victory Gardens within the Historic Village. Plants include yellow zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant, spinach, cheddar cauliflower, basil, oregano, bunching onions, beans, fennel, sage, and lavender.

The gardens are located behind Ruby’s House on Mason St. next door to Heritage House and behind Paulding House on Crown Hill.
