Soldiers of the Soil – the United States School Garden Army was created during WWII and made growing food a formal part of public education.

During World War I, Maginel Wright Enright received the "call" to design a series of posters for the United States School Garden Army (part of the National War Garden Commission). This national campaign was launched in 1917 to increase the food supply. Enright's posters, designed with strong flat colors and figures, depict an army of vegetables marching along with a child carrying a hoe.
