Join the Home Front for a day and find out how food was just as important in winning the war as weapons.  Help us 'Dig for Victory' in our vegetable plots following in the footsteps of the gardeners of the past.  Sow seeds and nurture them back at school.  Learn about healthy eating during the war and the seasonality of vegetables in Scotland.
