The Vegetable Garden is a production structure featured in The Last Stand: Dead Zone.


A small food crop that will help provide additional food.


The Vegetable Garden generates Food, which is stored in the Garden until it reaches full capacity. Once it reaches full capacity, production is stopped and will not resume until the Food is collected. Once collected, it will be added to the compound's stock of Food. Upgrades to this structure improve its temporary storage capacity and production speed.


  • Outdoor placement only.
  • Can be scavenged from during raids.
  • Occupies area of 4x4 squares bordered by walking area.
  • Collecting from this structure when at full capacity has a chance of providing extra resources.
