From The Indianapolis Star, Monday, April 16: The gardening movement has become part of the cleanup campaign being waged by Indianapolis citizens to make the city brighter and healthier. Spades, hoes, and rakes are being used all across the city as the idea of cultivating vacant lots with small gardens to increase the food supply has assumed more importance this year. The Southern Seed Co will donate seeds and plants – Late Refugee beans, Stowell corn, Admiral Dewey peas, Kentucky Wonder beans, Yellow Dutch onion seeds, Lady Finger radish seeds, and okra, turnip, beet, cucumber, and lettuce seeds – sufficient for twenty-five acres. A garden is possible in any space – from a window box on up – that admits sunlight. The small army of Indianapolis men, women and children working on the cleanup movement so far has been greeted with favorable weather.
