About Victory Garden Connection
Victory Garden Connection is a hub that connects agricultural professionals—individuals and businesses—with land owners across the United States and is a primary resource and database for Victory Garden stories and information. The Victory Gardens that became a part of daily life during WWI and WWII in the United States reduced pressure on the public food supply caused by the war effort.

Today, new societal pressures including food costs, industrial agriculture and unemployment, among others, have rendered Victory Gardens a viable option even today—a 21st Century solution to modern agricultural and societal problems.

The mission of the Victory Garden Connection Land Database—to which users may submit unused, available land—is to identify plots of land across the United States and to connect agriculture professionals, trained students and serious hobbyists with local opportunities.
