This WWI poster shows a girl with a plow and encourages youth to particpate in the creation of 'war gardens' to take the pressure off of the public food supply brought on by the war effort. The poster reads, 'Join the United States School Garden Army. Enlist Now. Write to The United States School Garden Army, Bureau of Education, Department of Interior, Washington, D.C.' The poster was illustrated by artist Edward Penfield and publisyed by the New York's American Lithographic Co. in 1918.
