Yeah! Obamas to Plant White House Vegetable Garden

Read New York Times Article here.

Seeing the Obama's plant a vegetable garden was one of my personal wishes for them to do while they live at the White House.

My eyes swelled up with tears while reading this article. It's such a powerful message and takes some backbone to stand up against large food corporations.

Eleanor Roosevelt was the last person to plant a garden on the White House lawn and she withstood huge criticism from large food companies. I am sure that the Obama's are standing up to equal if not more pressure. Obama's are demonstrating that they really do want real change.

"The Obamas have been lobbied for months by advocates who believe that growing more food locally could lead to healthier eating and lessen reliance on huge industrial farms that use more oil for transportation and chemicals for fertilizer."
