You could play a role in picking one of the most important non-cabinet positions in Barack Obama's administration--White House Farmer!
www.WhiteHouseFarmer.com takes Michael Pollan's modest proposal and runs with it; Pollan had called for a farmer laureate, a secretary of a different green, to plant acreage of the White House's south facing lawn to fruits and vegetables for the White House chef to use and distribute to local food banks. READ THE ARTICLE. Then go vote...for Washington's very own Carrie Anne Little of Mother Earth Farm in Pierce County, who's one of the top vote getters so far.
Carrie Anne Little's story couldn't be a better fit for the position. READ HER NOMINATION, get a little teary. Little has been working to provide fresh vegetables and fruit to the economically challenged for over 15 years, stretching the concept of a food bank in a fresh new direction.
You have until the end of the week to VOTE FOR our local lady. Not that I'm trying to put the fix in or anything... Top vote getters will be submitted for consideration; then, of course, step two: lobby to officially create the position. Just add it to President Obama's to do list; I'm sure he'll get around to it eventually.
