This Just In: Eat the View Wins Over On Day One

You may remember back in August, I told you about a campaign and petition to plant healthy, edible landscapes in high-impact, high-visibility places, including the White House — much like San Francisco's Slow Food Nation Victory Garden — called Eat the View. Well, as it turns out, after the polling the public on their preference of 81 ideas for our future pres., Eat the View was named the winner by On Day One, a platform for gathering ideas about what Obama should do on his first day in office. This isn't to say that Obama will be taking any orders from On Day One, but the people have spoken, and it's clear that many would like to see some veggies growing at 1600 Pennsylvania. What do you think about this campaign? Do you have your own vegetable, fruit, or herb garden? Would you like to see more gardens in public spaces?

The White House is a place of dignity and prestige and under more security than the Pacific Rim. A vegetable garden? Please. Ask Jackie O if she would have done that. Provided someone could reach her. I think she'd say NO!

I love this campaign. I have growing spaces for veggies, fruit, a small orchard, and herbs tucked into nooks and crannies in my landscaping. I think an organic garden to be harvested would look great, you can landscape them to look like works of horticultural art.
