100 Years Ago: Requests to Plough Gardens

The Intelligencer April 2, 1918 (page 7)

“How About Your Garden? To the Editor of The Intelligencer. Dear Sir,—Would you please give myself and others, who propose having a garden to help increase the production of food, the following information.

Has the Council or the Food Resource Committee made any arrangement by which citizens can get someone to plough up their garden? We hear people all over the city asking where they can get someone to plough up the sod. No one seems to know. Cannot the Council or the Resource Committee get this information and have it available?
