Green the Grounds in Oregon
It is fantastic to see that the White House is starting their own green movement. Wouldn’t it be a novel idea if every state capital building had a vegetable garden gracing its front yard to further spread the movement throughout this great nation?
In Salem, Oregon our capital building has a large expanse of lawn leading up to its marble steps. I would love to see our Govenor, Ted Kulongoski with a shovel in his hand breaking ground on a veggie garden. Oregon is one of the “greenest” states in the country. We need to continue to be the leader in promoting the slow food movement and our state’s agricultural legacy.
Earth Day is April 22, 2009. Join me by emailing, faxing or writing to the govenor’s office to promote this idea.
