I've been doing my best to NOT obsessively follow the first family's
every move, but I slipped a little today: Michelle Obama is planting an
organic vegetable garden at the white house.
The New York Times reports:
"While the organic garden will provide food for the first family’s meals and formal dinners, its most important role, Mrs. Obama said, will be to educate children about healthful, locally grown fruit and vegetables at time when obesity has become a national concern."
Maybe Michelle has been spending time with her fellow Chicagoans
Orrin Williams and LaDonna Redmond, whose urban agriculture initiative Growing Home provides healthy food, and jobs, to people on the South Side.
Or maybe she stumbled across this video on GreenForAll.org?
