A Victory Garden Talk. Interested in WWI? How the wartime garden movement of yesterday has helped shape and impact today’s food systems movement? Please plan on attending a free lecture sponsored by the Goleta Valley Historical Society at the amazing and historic Stow House in Goleta, near UCSB. Wednesday, October 15th, 5 p.m. Free, but reservations suggested. I’ll be discussing my book, “Sowing the Seeds of Victory: American Gardening Programs of World War I.”

Signed books available for sale.

One of the things you’ll probably like the most about this talk is that I share oodles of images: mostly World War I posters. You can learn more about poster art and the use of propaganda in Chapter Four of my book.

Or just come to my talk.

“A Garden for Everyone. Everyone in a Garden.”
