I'd intended to post about this fabulous campaign, Eat the View, designed to get the Obamas to promote organic gardening.
But instead, I'm very pleased to report that the dream came true. The NYT reports that the Obama family will be planting a vegetable garden at the White House.
What do you think about leaders who lead by example?
I think they ROCK.
And I think I'm going to send them a thank you note. I especially liked the final part of the NYT piece:
Good message, indeed. Even conservative mommies should agree with that advocacy.
But the first lady emphasized that she did not want people to feel guilty if they did not have the time for a garden: there are still many changes they can make.
“You can begin in your own cupboard,” she said, “by eliminating processed food, trying to cook a meal a little more often, trying to incorporate more fruits and vegetables.”
