The correct answer is the conservation of resources for the war effort. Victory gardens were home gardens where people could grow food that could be used. The objective of this program was to reduce the amount of resources to the families bought during the time of the war. This reduction of the amount of the goods purchased means that there will be more resources for soldiers during the first World War I. The national government had agencies dedicated to this cause and is being used in posters and other forms of propaganda to encourage the people to conserve their resources.
