Description

Poster showing a cartoon from the Chicago Evening Post of a farmer waving a banner "War Gardens" as his cannon made from a bushel basket fires produce and a German figure sky high.
Text: "Registered War Garden. Under protection of State Council of Defense. All the ammunition doesn't come from the Powder Factories. Feed yourself. Be a soldier of the soil. A war garden will do it. Exempt no land. To destroy the food supply is to give comfort to the enemy. Food will win the war."
