Edible landscapes for all: can you dig it? Yes, you can!

The future is going to be more fresh, juicy and delicious than a lot of us realize. That’s because edible landscapes are going to be more integrated into our yards, neighborhoods, towns, and cities in the future than they have in the recent past. So, rejoice: good, clean food is on the way!

To make this happen, though, we need more people asking for and digging these landscapes. Please join our campaign.

Here are a few things you can do to help:
1) Identify a landscape near you that you think should be “edible-ized”. Residents of San Francisco are planting a Victory Garden in front of their town hall. The Governors of Maine and New York are already eating from gardens planted at their official residences. New school gardens are being dug across the country. What about your town, your local schools, and elected official’s residence?

2) Sign our “White House Food Garden Petition” which we will deliver to the President-elect this fall along with a diverse collection of heirloom seed packets.

3) Vote for the idea of a food garden on the White House lawn at the website OnDayOne.org.

4) Join this campaign and website. Use this site to share your stories of edible landscapes you’re creating, planning, or already eating.

5) Join our Facebook group
