white house kitchen gardens

While perusing Wednesday's New York Times, I happened upon this informative little gem from Roger Doiron of Kitchen Gardeners International.....a Maine-based nonprofit network of 10,000 gardeners from 100 countries who are inspiring and teaching more people to grow some of their own food. They are also the coordinators of Eat the View- a campaign to plant high-impact food gardens in high-profile places. They collected over 100,000 signatures on a petition asking the Obamas to lead the way by replanting a kitchen garden on the First Lawn. Michelle Obama recently announced that she would be planting a vegetable garden on the South Lawn. Digging began last Friday. This will be the first vegetable garden at the White House in over 60 years, since Eleanor Roosevelt’s victory garden during World War II.

The film is by Eliot Morrison of yiggs.com.
