Today the First Lady hosted Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack
and students from Bancroft Elementary, in the White House Kitchen Garden on the South Lawn of the White House to plant the garden and highlight healthy eating. The same school participated in the groundbreaking of the Garden on March 20
and will return later this year for harvesting and cooking with the food grown.
