Should the Obamas have a White House garden?

A President, growing food on the White House lawn? Ah, but it’s been done – check out this cute vid esplaining the history of Presidental Prudence.

And, a tidbit from the Godfather herself, Ms. Alice Waters, on what qualities the Obamas should look for in a First Chef:

I want them to consider somebody who thinks about food as being connected to nature, to time and place, who understands where food comes from. I’m not thinking of someone who is a celebrity chef. Sometimes the celebrity gets in the way of a focus on real food. I think it should be somebody who just really understands the philosophy. [NYTimes.com]

Have two minutes? Sign the Food Democracy Now petition to get sustainable food-friendly folks into important government jobs.

Oh, and p.s.? Next dinner February 13th.
