Eating Floyd: Once Upon A Time...

... the USDA Knew the Right Thing To Do.

While looking for vintage images for posters I came across these government posters encouraging Victory Gardens and food preservation.  The posters just precede WWI and continue up to WWII.  After that as far as active encouragement from the government goes there's just... crickets.  So yes, these posters gear toward a war effort but it is amazing and ironic how pertinent they are to the current movement toward sustainability and control over our food sources and content.
