Expansion of local gardening efforts
With the nation's dependence upon oil, vast dependence upon corporate farming and unhealthy diets, I would vote that we reenact the Victory Garden movement. There are indications that this movement has already begun. Certainly First Lady Michelle Obama has been a great example, planting a vegetable garden in 2009 at the White House. She has recently written a book "American Grown" that tells the stories of the White House garden among others.
