Today I went to Change.org the website where you can join up and give your suggestions to the Obama crew about what you think his administration should do. If you are reading this on my blog site you can see I added a link to the Change.org web site with the topic. Green the White House. That will take you there so you can support the idea and add your vote to ask them to get a non toxic garden going and add veggies to the 17 acres of ceremonial lawns. A new Victory Garden like FDR had! What a treat to follow the White House's annual vegetable garden as it grows and produces food and herbs for their table and the excess could go to all the hungry homeless people and shelters in DC.
Also on this blog today I am posting two short videos with cute animations and story tellers to fill you in on the history of the lawn's gardens and the inspirations that moved me to vote for greening the white house lawn. Enjoy them they are both fun and if you feel moved to comment on Change.org I am sure it will help change the world!
