Update x3 - White House Farmer - Organic Gardening at the White House

How many of you have heard of the Eat The View website?

Well it is a website dedicated growing the awareness and acceptance of Organic Gardening and Farming by asking... well pushing.. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama to turn part of the White House lawn into an Organic Garden.

More below...

From the Eat The View website:

"Eat the View!" is a campaign to urge the Obamas to replant a large organic Victory Garden on the First Lawn with the produce going to the White House kitchen and to local food pantries.

"Eat the View" is coordinated by Kitchen Gardeners International, a Maine-based 501c3 nonprofit network of 10,000 gardeners from 100 countries who are inspiring and teaching more people to grow some of their own food.

Along with this effort is an effort for We The People to help designate the "White House Farmer". Check out the links and vote.

Who Will Be the First White House Farmer?

The United States has a White House chef . . . and now is the time for a White House Farmer.

Everyone, from your family and friends to our First Family and their guests, needs to know who grew their food and how it was grown.

Much of this was born out of a article in the New York Times.

... Well... in Washington State we have the perfect person for this job (should it ever need filled), her name is Carrie Little. Please take a moment to find out more about Carrie Little, read her story, read the comments and then Please vote for Carrie Anne Little.

I think this is a great idea

What better way to push the benefits of Organic Gardening and Farming, then to have the First Family taking part in this?

Thank you and please consider voting for Carrie Little.

(She is not related to me in any way, she is simply a person I trust for this popsition - should it ever come about).
