This 1914 poster encourages civilians to grow their own food. A toddler dressed in brown overalls smiles in front of a wooden fence, a large shovel resting comfortably on his shoulder. Above him is printed "Come into the garden, Dad!" as if he is beckoning the viewer to join him. Here home gardens are presented as fun and wholesome, an activity that you can enjoy with your children while also decreasing the food scarcity caused by the war effort.
