Asked when Obama said he wanted to green the White House, I did one quick Googling to find this article about that interview – with Barbara Walters. He kinda says yes, but then only talks about energy use.
But this looks interesting – there’s a "Greening the White House Report" ordered by Clinton and done by the Rocky Mountain Institute, no less, and the link’s in that article. Let’s see if they mention those 17 acres of land at all. The article mentions just one – switching to "smart sprinklers."
Greens of the plant world – gardeners of all types – it’s time for us to speak up about the improvements we know are possible – at the White House and in the backyards and frontyards of America.Posted by Susan Harris on December 16, 2008 at 8:41 am, in the category Green the Grounds.
