Revive the Victory Garden!

In October, Michael Pollan (author of "The Omnivore's Dilemma") wrote a letter to the incoming President-Elect outlining the policies that he hoped the new President would take into consideration from the perspective of sustainable agriculture.

One of the ideas put forward is to dedicate part of the White House lawn for a victory garden. As you probably know, during World War II, victory gardens were grown all over the country. Even Eleanor Roosevelt planted a garden at the White House.

It's time to bring back the victory garden! It will not only provide food for the White House, but symbolically supported the idea that sustainable agriculture is an important part of the Obama administration's new national agenda.
