More and More People Promote a White House Veggie Garden

Almost a year ago Roger Doiron, founder and director of Kitchen Gardens International, initiated the campaign to convince the new president to create a Victory Garden at the White House. He named the campaign Eat the View. Thousands have joined the movement that hopes to convince the new administration to grow some of its own produce and act as an example to the rest of the country and world. Sign the petition here.
Also, inspired by Michael Pollan's letter in the New York Times to the new Obama administration, another group has been accepting nominations for a White House Farmer. Nominations are now closed, but you can still vote for your favorite local organic vegetable farmer to be the next White House Farmer.

The next White House Farmer, you ask. That's right. Check out this video about the agricultural history of the south lawn of the White House.

Watch this video for a short history lesson.
