Obamas to Plant White House Vegetable Garden
Today, Michelle Obama is starting an 1,100 square foot garden in the White House lawn! This article from the New York Times explains how she wants to educate children and their families about eating local, healthful foods. She even says that her family, including the President, will weed the garden! I think it's really great to lead by example, and this is clearly something important that not enough people know enough about. And I think it would be awesome to have a staff to take care of the garden for you! They are going to have a lot of fruits and veggies to munch on.
