While I read Michael Pollan’s Open Letter to the President a few months ago, it just dawned on me that I didn’t know what had come of his effort, or whether his letter was part of a larger campaign. I felt that there was a surge of opinion leaders who wanted this type of thing to happen. While I’m late on realizing it, Eat the View amongst others have been working hard to get President Obama to take the step to plant an organic garden. You can join in by signing a petition!
