Michelle Obama Goes Garden ChicApr 1, 2010 @ 2:34 pm
First Lady Michelle Obama stays stylish even while gardening! Mrs. O celebrated the first anniversary of the White House Kitchen Garden in chic fitted black pants, a Clu cardigan (with an adorable Schiaparelli pink ruffle on the back!) and gray Converse sneakers. Forty children from local elementary schools joined the First Lady in planting new seeds of bok choy, white cauliflower, artichokes and mustard greens to the South Lawn garden, which has expanded 400 square feet since breaking ground last year. “There’s nothing like watching tiny seeds grow into something amazing. But the garden was about more than just planning healthy food,” Mrs. Obama told ABC News. “We also began a conversation about getting kids and parents and teachers all across the country thinking about living healthy.” Click on for more photos of the First Lady getting her hands dirty in the Kitchen Garden.
