Spring Celebration: Free Victory Garden Issue of The Essential Herbal to Download
Happy Spring to everyone. In celebration of Spring and the new vegetable garden being installed at the White house, I'm giving away a copy of the Victory Garden Issue from the Essential Herbal Magazine here on my blog.
Michelle Obama on the purpose of the white house vegetable garden:
We want to use it as a point of education, to talk about health and how delicious it is to eat fresh food, and how you can take that food and make it part of a healthy diet. You know, the tomato that's from your garden tastes very different from one that isn't. And peas - what is it like to eat peas in season? So we want the White House to be a place of education and awareness. And hopefully kids will be interested because there are kids living here.
We had our own Spring Celebration at the Fair Share Garden in Daytona yesterday. Vendors had a great variety of hand made products. There was an nutrition and veggie growing workshop. The conclusion of the festival featured the Heritage Dancers.
