The National WWII Museum’s Victory Garden is a recreation of a WWII Victory Garden using current sustainable techniques. Our Victory Garden can demonstrate that the lessons and examples from the World War II Home Front maintain lasting relevance within today’s society through field trips and weekend educational programming. The Victory Garden will be maintained by master gardeners and volunteers with seasonal produce being used in the local food pantries and the Museum’s restaurants – the American Sector and Soda Shop.
