This fall, FoodCorps members will serve D.C.-area schools including Cleveland Elementary School, Friendship Public Charter School, and Kimball Elementary School &mdash; and students from these schools accompanied FoodCorps at the garden planting.&nbsp;In addition, students from Bancroft Elementary School and Harriet Tubman Elementary School who have participated in previous <a href="http://www.letsmove.gov/blog/2013/04/04/students-join-first-lady-michelle-obama-plant-white-house-kitchen-garden">White House Garden events</a>&nbsp;also attended this year&rsquo;s planting.</p> <p><a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/04/03/spring-has-sprung-sixth-annual-white-house-garden-planting" target="_blank">read more</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-url"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Story URL:&nbsp;</div> <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/04/03/spring-has-sprung-sixth-annual-white-house-garden-planting" target="_blank">http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/04/03/spring-has-sprung-sixth-annual-white-h...</a> </div> </div> </div> <a href= Amanda Lucidon Cleveland Cleveland Elyse Cohen Harriet Tubman Healthy Kids Lawrence Jackson Michelle Obama Official The First Lady White House Thu, 03 Apr 2014 19:40:52 +0000 feed 264171 at http://newsmotion.org A Day in the Life: The First Lady Talks Healthy Families in Miami http://newsmotion.org/feed-story-en/day-life-first-lady-talks-healthy-families-miami <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> A Day in the Life: The First Lady Talks Healthy Families in Miami </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datetime field-field-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Wed, 03/05/2014</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>We never know what curveballs life is going to throw at us.

(Official White House Photo by Chuck Kennedy) </p> </div> Today, a group of student helpers joined First Lady Michelle Obama for the summer White House kitchen garden harvest. For this harvest, the First Lady invited children from two New Jersey communities that were affected by Hurricane Sandy and invited back all the children who helped plant the garden in April so they could see the fruits of their labors. First Lady Michelle Obama and the students got their hands dirty picking produce from the garden.</p> <blockquote><p class="p2">So we&rsquo;re here to harvest and we&rsquo;re going to clear this out, right?&nbsp; Right, Sam?&nbsp; I know I&rsquo;m going to be pulling up some radishes and doing some lettuce, but you guys are going to help harvest everything that&rsquo;s over there. &nbsp;</p> </blockquote> <p class="p1">After they were done harvesting they had a chance to try some of the&nbsp;vegetables they picked -- on a grilled garden pizza.&nbsp;</p> <blockquote><p class="p2">We&rsquo;re going to actually get to eat what we harvest today.&nbsp; So in addition to doing some harvesting, you guys are going to help -- we&rsquo;re going to do some veggie flatbread pizzas with the vegetables from the garden.&nbsp; You guys up for a little cooking, too?</p> </blockquote> <p>Watch a video of the planting below or on <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQqcP61W9vc">youtube</a>:</p> <p></p> <p>Want to plant your own garden?
