Practically Green Vlog: The White House Garden

In lieu of today's Practically Green Vlog, I would like to highlight a strong example of green living set by one of my favorite people, The First Lady, Michelle Obama.

Led by Mrs. Obama herself, the South Lawn of The White House will soon be home to a 55-variety organic kitchen garden.

This is the first vegetable garden at The White House since Eleanor Roosevelt's victory garden.

Politics aside, the presence of an organic vegetable garden at The White House sends an important message to children, communities, and the nation about healthful, locally grown, organic foods. 

If and when my husband and I finally buy our first home, planting our own kitchen garden is first on my list of Spring activities.
