If you didn’t already know, there is a campaign to petition President-elect Obama to plant a large organic food garden or Victory Garden on the First Lawn with the produce going to the White House kitchen and local food pantries. This wouldn’t be the first time, in the 1940s Eleanor Roosevelt planted a Victory Garden at the White House. The campaign isn’t just about the White House lawn. It’s also about identifying other “high profile, high impact” landscapes that could be made edible.
