Horta mesmo na frente da Casa Branca

Os exemplos vindos de cima são os mais imitados.
O casal presidencial norte americano decidiu fazer a horta bio, não envergonhada e escondida nas traseiras; mas mesmo na frente do jardim. E na foto vemos Michelle durante o equinócio da primavera a retirar o cancro verde (relva) que cobria a terra.
Uffff! Assim já não vou ter tanta gente surpreendida com o que ando a fazer.
Michelle Obama makes organic vegetable garden
Michelle Obama has begun digging up a patch of the South Lawn to plant a vegetable garden, the first at the White House since Eleanor Roosevelt's victory garden (todos produziram neles 40% da comida USA) in World War II. While the organic garden will provide food for the first family's meals and formal dinners, its most important role, Mrs. Obama said, will be to educate children about healthful, locally grown fruit and vegetables at a time when obesity and diabetes have become a national concern."My hope," the first lady said in an interview in her East Wing office, "is that the children will begin to educate their families and that will, in turn, begin to educate our communities."Twenty-three fifth graders from Bancroft Elementary School in Washington will help her dig up the soil for the 1,100-square-foot plot, in a spot visible to passers-by on the street. Whether there would be a White House garden had become a question of political and environmental symbolism, with the Obamas lobbied for months by organic advocates.
