The White House Garden


I was such a happy camper when Michelle Obama put this in. As my own garden is coming to an Autumn Pause, I went looking to see how the White House garden was doing. According to Time magazine this month, the WHG has produced 250 pounds of food this summer.

This video jazzes me in so many ways--- the ties to the Victory Gardens I tried to model this year; the ties to Jefferson in Virginia; the obvious reasons we should be gardening and eating with our family.

It's something peaceful and optimistic to consider while everything else political rages on about us.

  1. I love it! I want the help that Michelle had when I'm able to plant my own victory garden. Bringing in elementary students was a great idea. Very impressed that she's doing things to make an impression on families and their way of life. -Shelley
