Eat your vegetables, Sasha and Malia
You heard it here second (maybe first?), the Obamas will plant a vegetable garden on the White House grounds. Maybe that’s why the fountain perhaps predicted this new development by spouting green water earlier this week.
You can read all about it in the upcoming O, The Oprah Magazine:
Michelle Obama: We’re also working on a wonderful new garden project.
Oprah: Will kids get to visit the garden?
Michelle Obama: 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. 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.
Just keep repeating, O, The Oprah Magazine. O, The Oprah Magazine. O, The O…
Got a little distracted. Congratulations to the “Eat the View” campaign. And best wishes to the Obamas, our First Gardeners.
