I am working with a school teacher who is involving her students in gardening and teaching history at the same time by making a link with WWII "victory garden" program. I remember that my grandparents received a "V" for victory recognition certificate in the Tennessee Home Food Supply Program in 1945 for producing at least 75% of their food on the farm.

Can you refer me to sources of historical information/refereences about the victory garden initiative during WWII?
