An Organic Garden at the White House...

Posted Aug 05 2008 8:17am


Eat the View, a movement to plant healthy, edible landscapes in high-impact, high visibility places, wants theWhite House to plant an organic food garden. Via Bethany Sanders ofThat’sFit:

We planted our first vegetable garden this past spring and enjoyed it so much that we just spent the weekend doubling its size for next year. With a very small financial investment and a little bit of physical labor, we've been able to contribute fresh, healthy, organic foods to our menu and teach our kids some lessons about food production as well.



Rising food costs, food safety concerns, and an increased awareness about environmental issues have lead to an increase in backyard gardening. And some food activists are hoping to encourage that trend by putting an organic garden on one of the most well-known lawns in Amercia ... The White House.

Sounds like a great idea, the ultimate lead by example!The White Houseused to farm in the past. Check out this photo onEatTheView.org:
