More “Victory Garden” Talk…

The garden for recovery movement keeps gaining ground…Roger Doiron has an op-ed out this weekend…

In Jerzy Kosinski’s novel and award-winning screenplay, “Being There,” the U.S. president turns to a plain-spoken gardener named Chance for wisdom at a time of economic crisis. The insight Chance offers is as simple as it is reassuring: Growth has its seasons and, as long as the roots of growth are not severed, all will be well.

President Barack Obama would be wise to add a gardener or farmer to his team of advisers. I already know what advice I’d offer if called to serve: Launch a new victory garden campaign starting with one on the White House lawn.
