When Modern Was Green: Envisioning a Revolution of Gardens.

In this document, Migge leberfcht that all social and economic problems of the German nation could be solved by creating as many gardens as possible, which included parks, but most importantly, small, intensive vegetable gardens where everyone could grow their own food.
