Long ago the world was in trouble. Times where turbulent, Nazi bankers were warring and taking over all of Europe and occupying the middle east. Imperialists were seeking control of all of south east Asia and its raw materials. The global transfer of goods and raw materials began to grind to a halt, as it became almost impossible to ship things that were not absolutely vital. The government asked its people to kick in, make necessary sacrifices, and do the right thing. There was rationing of fuel, recycling drives for war materials, women even donated their silk stockings for parachutes. People had to make due with what they had or could make on there own... People at home grew victory gardens, to ease the burden on the supply. A victory garden for those that couldn't do as much as some but still cared, and wanted to help.
Think of all the wasted space out there today, upper middle class people have well manicured lawns, rose bushes, and flowerbeds. And usually pay folks to care for it using gas powered equipment. Imagine if they put in a green house, some corn rows and some soybeans, maybe some oaks and fruit trees, even a compost pile, and some hens, a goat or a pig. People in the city with less space can grow herbs, and potted plants, or smaller yard gardens. We need to realize that we are fighting a war right now the age of the consumer is over, we need to become self sustaining, And environmentally aware, of the green revolution taking place today.
