Obama Garden: Good News for the Slow Food Community

Good news for our food community - the Obamas will plant a 1,100-square foot garden on the White House lawn. This will be the first White House garden since Eleanor Roosevelt's Victory Garden. Sounds like a good victory for our food movement as well!

Stay tuned for the minutes of our meeting this week complete with action items/next steps.
