Obama transfarms the White House lawn, image by

spacer This Lawn is Your Lawn.

This video is part of Kitchen Gardeners International's Eat the View! campaign to convert part of the White House lawn into an edible landscape.

It features KGI founder, Roger Doiron, digging a new vegetable garden on his "white house" lawn with a request to President Obama to do the same with his which is actually ours anyway.

Can we dig this new garden and inspire a nation? Yes, we can!

TransFARM the White House Lawn
Farmers Amanda Fuller and Justin Mog had the same idea as the Eat the View organizers and sent the Obama's this letter of application.
