The mightily prolific White House garden — which this year encompassed 1,500 square feet, boasted 55 types of plants and yielded 1,600 pounds of produce — has kept people buzzing mainly because it’s been the largest and most expensive to date. More importantly, it’s been symbolic of Michelle Obama’s mission to spread awareness about childhood nutrition and the importance of people, regardless of age, embracing wholesome dietary choices.

The much-praised, pesticide-free parcel will take a back seat this week when our First Lady travels to a non-profit farm called Stone Barns Center to host a luncheon and tour their facilities along with the spouses of various other political leaders. The New York based farm will share details about its unique children’s program which enables local students to participate in hands-on harvesting experiences such as “collecting eggs from pasture-raised hens.”

The facility offers an impressive array of unique after school classes encouraging younger generations to become more connected to the environment, such as how to use companion planting techniques to naturally repel insects, how to make herb-infused concoctions, and how to sketch and press botanicals. Hopefully, the fantastically sustainable system employed by Stone Barns Center will become the impetus for the implementation of copycat programs by Obama and her cohorts!

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
