Roger Doiron, a fellow Mainer, initiated the "Eat Your Lawn" campaign to get the "next" president (during the campaign last year) to plant a garden on the White House lawn. I was so excited to hear that his efforts were rewarded :).

I wonder how much residual pesticide and herbacide is in the soil of the white house lawn? How would you assure that wouldn't be a factor? Raised beds filled with chem free dirt? You know that lawn has been spayed extensively.

The garden will be tended by a white house carpenter who is also a beekeeper, I read in the Washington Post. I thought of ya'll when I read that...

Another person who campaigned for the garden was Daniel Bowman Simon, who last year drove a school bus with a sustainable garden on its roof across the country.

Hey, I am happy for ANY awareness in Washington DC
