The White House Gets a Garden

With the state of the current economy -- you would be surprised how much money a personal garden can save your family. Tending to a garden teaches the whole family to appreciate and connect with their food on a regular basis, as well as creating a well-balanced diet.

Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama has said she wants to make the White House vegetable garden an opportunity to talk about America's diet.

"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," she told Oprah Winfrey in the April issue of O magazine, first reported by food writer Eddie Gehman Kohan.

"You know, the tomato that's from your garden tastes very different from one that isn't. And peas -- what is it like to eat peas in season? So we want the White House to be a place of education and awareness. And, hopefully, kids will be interested because there are kids living here [in the White House]."

Spring is here and it's the perfect time for your family to research and plan your very own garden -- by summer time you will have fresh, healthy and in season vegetables that will nourish your family in every way!

I love that the White House will be having a garden. There is nothing like organtic fresh food. When I am cooking I go shopping in the back yard,the price is great!The cost of seeds ,ferterlizer is small compared to free food.
I hope they kids involved in growing fresh fruits and veggies.
