A Victory Garden is one in
which a sufficient quantity of dif
ferent vegetables are grown to
feed the family. Normally this re
quires 1-10 acre for each member
of the family—with 10 ay more
different vegetables grown.
Today food is recognized as one
FOOD FOR VICTORY-
By LAWRB.VCE MII.I/ER
Immediately when a garden be
comes a Victory Garden, and
consists of not less than 0.1 acre
for each person on the farm for^
any number of persons up to 1.0
acres, and this garden has at
least 10 different kinds of vege
tables produced during the year,
and approved agricultural meth
ods have been followed, including
>^^tectk>n from Insects and pro-
^icUon from poultry and livestock
and provided that not more than
oae-fourth of the area he devot

Although the importance of raia
ing sufficient food and fesd for
family and livestock has been
stressed for years by farm or-
gazinations, and farm leaders, the
problem is still one of |>ari»ount
significance. The farm census
shows that in 1940 North Carolina
farm families produced |63346,-
e615 of their food needs, 01* 1213.00
I worth per family, which Is about
one-half of its needs.
However, there were 31,149 fam
ilies which did not have' gardens.
Mioiy a farm family, reported as
having a garden, was not produc
ing an adequate supply of vege
tables to meet the neecfs of that
Deficiencies in livestock are even
more pronounced. In 1940, there
were 33,164 farm families without
chickens. 86,604 without a hog, and
98,460 without a milk cow. The
available facts indicate that thir
ty per cent of the white farm fam
ilies and fifty per cent of the
Negro farm families hare a diet
below the level considered safe by
