White House Garden
A few months ago we reported that The White House was talking about growing an organic garden to raise awareness around nutrition and sustainability. In the April issue of Oprah magazine, Michele Obama says they are definitely going to take this project on.
"We want to use it as a point of education, to talk about health and how delicious it is to eat fresh food, and how you can take that food and make it part of a healthy diet,” says the First Lady. This is great news. Not only will this be an opportunity for people to learn about the benefits of eating fresh, whole foods but in this economic climate people will save money by growing their own food.
Do any of you plan to start your own garden this spring/summer? Please share any tips with those who have never nurtured a garden.
