The New York and New England Cement company has received from Congressman Ward two sacks of garden seeds sent out by the government for distribution among its employees.
The company has set aside tracts of ground for all its employees who may want to start gardening, each man getting a plot 25x100 feet. The land has been ploughed by the company and it also supplies the water which may be required during the summer. Over a hundred plots will be worked.
The New York and New England Cement Company became Universal Atlas Cement Company, then St. Lawrence Cement, and finally Holcim.
