Michelle Obama is going all out to ensure her garden is preserved after the Obamas leave the White House.
Michelle plowed the garden in 2009.
India News 24 reported:
There’s no actual memo, but first lady Michelle Obama is going all-out to make sure the White House kitchen garden that she created in 2009 and expanded twice doesn’t get plowed under by the next first family.
With less than four months left in the Obama administration, the first lady on Wednesday dedicated an expanded and improved garden with the hope that it will continue regardless of who takes office come January.
“This little garden will live on as a symbol of the hopes that we all hold of growing a healthier nation for our children,” Mrs. Obama told a crowd gathered at the garden to celebrate the dedication. “I am hopeful that future first families will cherish this garden like we have, and that it will become one of our enduring White House traditions.”
The garden’s size has grown from an original 1,100 square feet to 2,800 square feet. It has a new wooden arbor for an entrance, wider bluestone walkways, wooden tables and benches.
There’s even an inscribed stone that reads: “White House Kitchen Garden, established in 2009 by First Lady Michelle Obama with the hope of growing a healthier nation for our children.”
