In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit Fenway Victory Gardens, one of the last remaining World War II “victory gardens” in the United States. The luscious garden quietly grows across from Boston’s historic Fenway Park and was used during the war to help supplement dwindling food supplies.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
