Victory Garden; The
Old
OLD is new again. During World Wars I and II, home gardeners supported the effort abroad by growing their own vegetables to feed their families. Today, the Victory Garden movement continues - representing the need to work toward sustainability in an effort to connect the planet to the plate. Host Jamie Durie visits San Francisco to see the installation of "Victory Gardens 2008" in front of City Hall's Civic Center. Jamie speaks with San Francisco's mayor, Gavin Newsom, and renowned chef and passionate slow food advocate Alice Waters about this special city project. Then, gardening correspondent Paul Epsom visits Mixed Border Nursery in Hollis, New Hampshire, to show viewers how several old varieties of plants are still favorites today - and how they've evolved through hybridization. Resident chef Michel Nischan's "Homegrown" segment features a master gardener whose greenhouse and garden supply a new restaurant.
