Where are we?
*1972*
Mission:
To enrich the Smithsonian experience through exceptional gardens, horticultural exhibits, collections, and education.
Enough eggs laid end to end to reach the moon 7 times

Enough milk to float the navies of the United Nations

Enough meat to pave 8, 4-lane super highways from NY to San Francisco 1" thick

Enough cases of canned tomatoes to reach from Boston to Bombay, India

Corn acreage equal to the area of Japan proper
Within These Walls
Mary Scott ran this home during WWII, personally canning the produce from her victory garden.

"Rain! The gardens need it bad. Canned up seven qts. carrots, and I set the alarm for 1:20 A.M. and went to bed."
