Seeds of change at White House
History was made at the White House this week when First Lady Michelle Obama responded to a 100,000 signature petition and turned the first sod for a White House vegetable patch. Thousands of keens gardeners and foodies - including high-profile chef Alice Waters -have been lobbying the White House to use its extensive gardens to feed people and encourage more Amercians to do the same in these troubled financial times.
Michelle Obama has heeded the call and says fruit and vegetables grown in the garden will be served to White House guests or given to feed the local homeless.
