School kids to garden at the White House
WASHINGTON (AP) - School kids from around the country will descend on Washington next week to help with spring planting at the White House kitchen garden.
Michelle Obama's office says local school children will be joined Monday by kids from elementary schools in Ames, Iowa, Chester, Pa., and Greensboro, N.C.
In addition, children from a Girl Scout troop in Fairport, N.Y. will help. The scouts from Troop 60325 wrote Mrs. Obama that they were growing 100 tomato plants to give to people without access to fresh food.
The elementary schools that snagged invitations also have been active in gardening.
This will be the fourth annual spring planting for the first lady's garden, the first vegetable patch at the White House since Eleanor Roosevelt's wartime victory garden.
