The White House Garden as Model with a twist

Jun 12, 2011

Living in the wonderful, though polluted and loud and impossibly diverse dimension of Brooklyn, New York and the fresh air, small paradise of southern Vermont on weekends and other getaway times, I was pleasantly surprised and inspired by Kitchen Garden Interrnational's suggested subsidy for kitchen gardens. This wonderful notion is so wonderful because it conflicts with the nearly total support for our pesticide-rich agricultural landscape. It's refreshing to be surprised by alternate reality, even if it's only once in a blue moon. And I hope that others appreciate the irony of how the Obama's White House organic produce is so out of reach for the overwhelming majority of Americans. They eat so differently than the First Family.
