Victory Gardens, also called “war gardens” or “food gardens for defense” were gardens planted by ordinary citizens during World War I and World War II to provide some relief in the public food demands. As it is now as it was in World War II when the nation fell on hard times, this is the time we can help the nation and ourselves to persevere. With store shelves bare and nutritious foods in short supply, if there is any good to be found in these trying times, let one of them be the fact that we are now in the growing season.
When we first saw this facebook post on Stacie Cahn Greenhouse's Facebook page our jaw dropped. I thought to myself "Oh my gosh, this is exactly what Mom and Dad strived for when they started Goffle Brook Farms 51 years ago. A place where happiness flourishes, where their's growth and friendships made, a place where their is love, kindness and laughter in the air."
