Michelle and Kids Dig In
By Miryam Ehrlich Williamson
First Lady Michelle Obama and 26 Washington DC schoolchildren broke ground Saturday for a kitchen garden on the south lawn of the White House. As many as 55 vegetables and herbs will be grown year-round for use in the White House. Mrs. Obama hopes the project will enhance Americans’ understanding of where their food comes from, and encourage more healthful eating habits. In addition to her other talents, the First Lady has the skills and enthusiasm of a real teacher.
The Washington Post has the whole story, including a delightful video.
