Victory Gardens & Hobo Dinners
History repeats itself, and the sacrifices made during our nation’s times of war and economic crisis can be recycled into solutions for today as well. Emotions run high and anything we do to strengthen our emotional ties as a community can help. Remember the “victory” gardens of WWII? They can become container gardens (tie a red, white and blue ribbon or a yellow ribbon (or both) to the container to serve as a visual encouragement). Some people may not have a green thumb, while others who have knowledge, skills and abilities may not have a strong back to handle gardening chores.
Why not host a neighborhood “hobo dinner”? Everyone who attends brings one can of food per person for the “hobo pot”. Take off the label first, to add an element of fun to the process. Encourage people to bring an empty container for leftovers as there are sure to be some… like the old “Stone Soup” story, the sum of this dish is greater than the parts and we always have leftovers. Those who can, bring bread or crackers, maybe a dessert. The result is always delicious and the culinary process is an adventure!
