Eat the View

Do you eat?

Do you like food that likes you back?

Do you like the planet?

Then you might want to check out Eat the View, which is "a campaign to plant healthy, edible landscapes in high-impact, high visibility places".

You can sign the White House Food Garden Petition there, which Eat the View promises will be delivered to the President-elect this fall (along with a diverse collection of heirloom seed packets). This petition asks the next President to create an organic food garden on the White House lawn, with part of the harvest going to the White House kitchen and the rest to a local food pantry.



I think an organic food garden on the White House lawn would be a powerful act of magic and effective modeling. Perhaps if our leaders reconnected with the land and their food, they would make different legislative choices (or I would hope so).

I believe that the taste of local, homegrown, sun-kissed produce can help to change the world. If we come together to share and glory in these gifts then we will once again see each other and see the earth. That is my hope...

*LOL* Should I? I'll do anything that will convince them that growing food is important...more important than shady pergolas and calla lilies even.
