White House Garden watch

Michelle Obama continues to excite discussion with the “what next” side of the White House garden: “The Next Course.” I’m happy to see that although her team is clearly well aware of the issues (local, organic, sustainable, etc.) they have intentionally chosen to keep it on the vague side – indeed, when there are many inner city neighborhoods in America that have no viable source for fresh produce, it seems a bit odd to champion such concepts. Let’s work to get fresh produce into schools and homes and making our food supply safe before we start asking people to consider the next step! I’m a firm supporter of buying local, organic, and sustainably raised products, but I’d rather see conventionally farmed food made available to all our children in place of the “food products” that so many seem to exist on.
