Can ruthless wars leave any constructive lesson for the environment? Yes, if we refer to the “Victory Gardens” from the World Wars, which sprouted in millions in community areas or at homes to support the troops with fruits and vegetables during troubled times.

Green America looks to these “Victory Gardens” as a way to negate the impact of greenhouse gas emissions while producing millions of tons of safe and nutritious food to feed a growing U.S. population, writes Green Matters.

Green America aims to launch 40 million Climate Victory Gardens across the U.S. by 2030, involving citizens in the campaign against climate change, notes Inhabitat.
