Nearly 85,000 people have signed an online petition calling for part of the White House lawn to be turned into a vegetable patch, the plan’s germinator said Wednesday.
“The idea is for the Obama family to plant an organic vegetable garden on part of the White House lawn, with the cultivated veggies going to the White House kitchen and any overflow going to feed those in need,” Roger Doiron, told AFP, adding the idea had sprouted last year.
If the Obamas were to plant a garden on the White House grounds, it would have the “inspirational potential” to spawn millions of similar gardens, not only in the United States but around the world, Doiron predicted.
Of course they would need to get a shed or two as thats the rules!
