Comerford said that each morning she looks in the White House Garden to see what is ready to harvest and that she changes the menu based on what she can incorporate into upcoming meals. She also said that canning, jarring and pickling gives her flexibility to use fruits and vegetables in future meals.</p> <p><a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/08/13/what-you-missed-field-trip-white-house-kitchen-garden" 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/2014/08/13/what-you-missed-field-trip-white-house-kitchen-garden" target="_blank">http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/08/13/what-you-missed-field-trip-white-house...</a> </div> </div> </div> <a href= Cameron Brenchley Cris Comerford Education Healthy Kids Official White House Wed, 13 Aug 2014 20:44:41 +0000 feed 318527 at http://newsmotion.org Join Us for a Maker Camp Field Trip to the White House Kitchen Garden http://newsmotion.org/feed-story-en/join-us-maker-camp-field-trip-white-house-kitchen-garden <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Join Us for a Maker Camp Field Trip to the White House Kitchen Garden </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">Tue, 08/12/2014</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Watch the Maker Camp Field Trip below starting at 2 p.m. ET</p> <p></p> <p>Get&nbsp;ready to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty!&nbsp;White House Executive Chef Cris Comerford&nbsp;is inviting you to join&nbsp;a&nbsp;virtual <a href="http://makercamp.com/">Maker Camp</a> Field Trip&nbsp;to&nbsp;the White House Kitchen Garden on Wednesday, August 13 at 2:00 p.m. ET.</p> <p>Google and Make have come together to put on Maker Camp,&nbsp;a&nbsp;free online summer camp&nbsp;for building, tinkering and exploring available online and in local neighborhoods.

Come smell the beautiful, brightly colored fruits and vegetables in the Kitchen Garden, including herbs grown from Thomas Jefferson&#39;s garden at Monticello; see the vibrant flowers in the Pollinator Garden; and hear the bees buzzing around the White House Beehive.</p> <p>Nestled on the White House South Lawn, the Kitchen Garden is home to different fruits, vegetables, and herbs each growing season. The First Lady planted the White House Kitchen Garden in 2009 to initiate a national conversation around the health and wellbeing of our nation and to serve as an inspiration for schools and community groups across the country to plant gardens of their own. Now nearly five years later, the Kitchen Garden is as healthy as ever and is an example of just how easy it is to plant a garden in your backyard, school, or community space.</p> <p>So if you haven&rsquo;t already started your own garden, <a href="http://www.letsmove.gov/gardening-guide">click here to check out the Let&rsquo;s Move!
