15 Best Victory Garden Crafts

By: Caley Walsh

In March, a team led by Michelle Obama began preparing a spot of land on the White House grounds for an organic vegetable garden. The garden will provide food for the first family and dinners at the White House, but will also help educate children about the importance of healthy, local food. Many are calling this project a “victory garden,” comparing it to Eleanor Roosevelt’s victory garden during World War II. Many homes during this time had a private victory garden when the war put a strain on food supplies. These gardens were also considered important for morale in the community.

Like Michelle Obama, many people have once again embraced the concept of victory gardens. Personal gardens reduce the reliance on industrial farms, which use chemical fertilizers and more oil for transportation, contribute to plastic waste through packaging, and contribute to greater carbon emissions. Organic vegetables from the back garden simply taste better and help encourage people to eat better.

In the spirit of this wonderful movement, we have put together this collection of our favorite garden crafts. We hope these ideas inspire you to start your own victory garden. Use recycled materials for some of these crafts and you’ll be an eco-goddess. Wine bottles planted upside down can be turned into garden edges and regular plastic bottles can be turned into a garden irrigation system. Here are some more ideas to make your garden a beautiful place:
