Productive Politics

Here is an excerpt from an article on the green-change blog that suggests a veggie garden at the Prime Minister’s Canberra residence would be a good idea.
The Obama’s were quick to turn part of the White House garden over to veggies – so why not the Rudds? It would definitely be a healthier and more productive way for Australia to follow America than ways taken in the past.

Kev’s Patch

The Obamas have famously planted an organic vegetable garden on the lawn of the White House in the US.
The idea was first posted at, a site collecting proposals for the new president to undertake upon entering office. It was picked up by newspapers and media, and quickly became the most popular proposal on that site. The web site served as a focal point for the movement.
The Eat The View proposal eventually went on to be voted the grand prize winner of the On Day One contest.
On 20 March 2009, the Obamas started their new White House Kitchen Garden. They’ve even published the layout as an example for others.
This simple action is inspiring families all over America to do the same, which can only be a good thing for their health and budgets!
So Why Not The Lodge?
