New Exhibition In Santa Paula Looks At Efforts To Encourage Food Conservation, Home Gardens During Wartime

We don’t give it a thought if we need to buy some food staples like eggs, or sugar. But, during World War II, there was mandatory rationing to try to insure we had the resources necessary to support the war effort.

A new museum exhibition in Ventura County called “When Gardening Was Patriotic” looks at when Americans were asked to help with the war efforts during World Wars I, and II by growing, and conserving food.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco reports the exhibition at a Santa Paula museum features artifacts dating back nearly a century.
