Members of the Woman's National Farm and Garden Association, 1918

Summary

After the United States entered World War I in 1917, Americans worried about labor and food shortages as a result of men going off to fight. Organizations like the Women's Land Army and the Women's National Farm and Garden Association recruited and trained women to perform agricultural work across the country. These women grew squash on a Massachusetts farm.
