Disney Embraces the Victory Garden

Thanks to @TheYarden, I was just tipped off to the New Victory Garden at Disney World, heavy on the Rosie the Riveter theme.

How’d I miss this? Or did I know it once… and then forgot? Dang.

This informative, well-illustrated 2008 post on Disney’s loooong history with victory gardens credits Mickey et al with putting one in place back in the 1990s.

Hmmmm… how come I don’t remember seeing the garden the couple of times that I went in the late ’90s/early ’00s? Was I on that much of a sugar high from the candy apples?

I poked around online for current information and it seems the victory garden is considered, at least by some, as a featured part of the 2010 Epcot International Flower and Garden Show. One source says “yes” (wait, make that two sources) the other is vague and places emphasis on community gardening.

Anyone been to Disney and remember this garden? Better still, got any New Victory Garden pics to share on the RW&G Facebook page?
