Members of the Westminster unit of the Girls Training Corps look on as Miss B Tarver, a Ministry of Agriculture expert, explains radish sowing to them as they work on the creation of an allotment in what was once the garden of 145 Piccadilly, the former home of the King and Queen. Bomb damaged buildings can be seen behind them as they work. According to the original caption, Miss Tarver also runs the Ministry of Agriculture's demonstration plot in Hyde Park.
