A Short History of the White House Garden


[YouTube - Link]

The White House grounds has always had a rich history of political intrigue, drama, and fascinatingly...gardening. It would seem that as each President took office they would add a little something to the grounds from plants, trees, and vegetable gardens.

With food and fuel costs skyrocketing the video ends with an optimistic view of the next President declaring more locally grown gardens for food production. Despite the quick drop of the true agenda by the nonprofit group Kitchen Gardeners International who made the video it still doesn't detract or take away the interesting fact filled history of the White House Gardens.

Annoying, blatant propaganda, and I'm all for growing your own stuff.

This seemed just a little condescending. "Food is travelling farther - it's the end of the world!"
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
