    I'm glad to see that the first family is leading by example. Eating locally grown produce is a great step. Of course, I wish I had the White House staff available to do my weeding for me, too, but I think this is cool in any case. And the carpenter/beekeeper? Rock on! I'd like that, too!

    I think this is wonderful, the Obama children can learn alot and the local school children are probably so excited. We started turning over our garden today, can't wait to get started. My husband divided it up into 3 gardens this year, my 2 youngest wanted thier own gardens to plant what they wanted this year.

    I think it's great, but I wonder why they made such a fuss over it being "out of sight" from the White House? Do they not want people to see it, dignitaries and such?

    What a nice supportive thing to do for people who understand the enjoyment and value of growing their own food. I'm all for it....!

    I think it's a wonderful example for all the people who think they're too busy and can't grow/raise their own food.
