This is awesome! I was just thinking the other day "what if the White House lawn was ripped out and made into a food forest, how cool would that be!"

I guess I should have added, it only takes your name and email address to cast 3 votes for permaculture. Permaculture could use this kind of exposer.

I'll have to check my companion plant app for what grows next to money trees, we wouldn't want to slow the growth of that tree.

Just cast my 3 votes.... it's ahead at the moment, but only have a few more days! (Is this an answer to Paul's prayers - national exposure ? :)

They fell behind and are now back up. Come on Paul, send out a mass email to all of your peeps. Including me.

The top 5 vote getters each go to the White House. By finishing first, we have certainly sent a message to the WH.
At least somebody there will know the words 'food forest' and 'permaculture'.

Of course, once it is associated with the White House, 'permaculture' will probably become
a wonderful target/hate word for the Santorumists during this election year...
