Group Description



This is the Flickr group for "Eat the View", a citizen-led, nonpartisan, nonprofit campaign to petition President-Elect Obama to convert part of the White House's 18-acre lawn back into an edible landscape. The White House has had organic gardens before and - with what's happening in the world - it makes sense again.

We've set up this group as a way of inspiring and collecting portraits of people who support the campaign and are already "eating the view". The more photos like this we can generate and collect, the stronger our case will be. Think of it as a group photo activism project.

There are three requirements for photos added to this group:
1) They should be portraits of people (individuals, couples, groups) who are biting into home-grown or locally-grown fruits, vegetables, or herbs.
2) They should be shot in front of a white house (preferably) or white background.
3) They should have a Creative Commons license: we'd like to feature some of them on our campaign website and possibly in a YouTube mashup sequel to our smash hit "This Lawn is Your Lawn"..

Let's see what the Flick Community can do!
