      I love this poster. During World War I and II, there were many of these propaganda posters made to encourage people to grow vegetables, fruit and herbs. The production of food production was reduced especially in Europe and United Kingdom because of the war. In the U. S., Canada, United Kingdom and Germany, the public was asked to grow their own food to help with the war effort. The victory gardens became a part of daily life on the home front. http://www.dinnergarden.org/victoryGardens.html
