Nina Koziol, adjunct faculty at the Chicago Botanic Garden and Morton Arboretum, and long-time garden writer, will present wonderful background information on gardening history. It’s a look at Americans during the world wars. In 1917, food shortages caused rioting in New York City. President Woodrow Wilson called Americans to grow their own food and thus the first “war gardens” were born. During WWII the name was changed to Victory Gardens.
