Organic Garden on the White House Lawn
Last week Alice Waters, a leader in the organic food movement, hosted a dozen dinners prepared with organic food to celebrate Obama’s rise to office. She brought in Obama’s favorite chef from Chicago, Rick Bayless and other famous chefs like Dan Barber and Tom Colicchio.
Waters believes that if she gets President Obama on board with a White House organic garden, more people will be inspired to grow their own food. How cool would that be?
Many people struggle with buying organic food because it tends to be more expensive, but if people learned to grow some food at home and purchase ingredients wisely, more people could have access to fresh food. Waters also maintains that by growing our own food we are not only eating well, but also taking care of the land.
