The Garden of Eatin’ – A Short History of Gardening at the White House
I’ve been talking all these weeks about how a Low Density Lifestyle can put you on the path of health and wellness, and of healthy living in general. And that is so, so true and so, so important.
A Low Density Lifestyle will make you feel lighter of body and mind. It will also make you be and feel less dense in relationship to our planet. With all the concern about global warming, pollution and toxins in our environment, it’s so important to apply a Low Density Lifestyle to the environment, and tread lightly wherever you go.
For the next couple of weeks, I will be talking about being light in relationship to our planet. First I will talk about sustainable agriculture, organic foods and eating locally; then after that I will talk about the environment and energy.
Earth Day is coming very soon, so this is a good time to bring up these subjects.
The point is that living a Low Density Lifestyle applies not only to your personal well-being, but to the well-being of the greater whole. You can say it extends to the health and wellness of the entire planet, so that the planet can experience healthy living.
You may have heard by now that Michelle Obama has decided to take a segment of the White House lawn and turn it into an organic vegetable and fruit garden. What a great statement to make about the importance of eating organic, sustainable and local foods.
In other words, the Obamas are advocating for a Low Density Lifestyle!
In the above video, you’ll see a history of gardening at the White House. You’ll see that by putting in an organic garden, Michelle Obama is turning back the clock to a time when it was the normal thing to do – just as living a Low Density Lifestyle was also the normal thing to do.
