Although the push for school gardens was mighty in the first half of the 20th century, most the pro-garden posters with which we are now most familiar feature veggies and/or target women. I love that this super hero image clearly targets young boys… and, well, their mothers who have a thing for Batman. (Guilty!)
Of course, WWII-era kids had good ol’ Barney Bear and his victory garden, too.
I suppose you could regard all these as precursors to Plants vs. Zombies?
If you’re interested in bringing the story of victory gardening into your classroom or home learning environment, then I highly recommend that you visit ClassroomVictoryGarden.org.
