White House Vlogs About Its Garden
As the first day of school for many students in the Washington area wound down, the White House released a more than seven minute-long Web video about the development of the White House kitchen garden and the role of students from Bancroft Elementary School in farming it.
"Part of the message is that if the president of the United States can sit down with his family and have dinner, hopefully more families will find time to do the same thing," said first lady Michelle Obama in the video, which she narrated with White House chef Sam Kass.
"The garden is really an important introduction to what I hope will be a new way that our country thinks about food," said Obama, who called the garden "quite an amazing success, if I do say so myself."
