growing food even...

...at the white house!the white house will have an edible garden! it will provide food for use by the white house chef as well as local food banks.
better food policy could beneficially affect health care, the environment, peak oil, and the economy.
and it will help farmers markets! including ours in provo! read about food democracy here. and the food declaration here. who's putting this movement together? michael pollan, alice waters, etc. all the food greats!

When it comes to attending a lecture by someone fantastic (Michael Pollan). who wrote a few books i really like (The Botany of Desire, The Omnivores Dilemma). about a topic that the O'lover is obsessed with (FOOD)...i make it my duty to scooch my chair up..and lean forward...and stick my leg out. So there's no mistaking that I am indeed the CLOSEST audience member.
me and Michael...ahhhh...Many thanks to my grandma-in-law Lillian. Besides being a constant inspiration (she is a very strong woman and environmental activist) she is the matriarch of the family I so luckily married into. Oh! And she also provides the hot item tickets to the author series up at Sundance.
