Michelle Obama and gardening on Sesame Street’s 40th anniversary season opener

Sesame Street begins it’s 40th anniversary season this year, and to kick off the premiere episode, Michelle Obama will be guest starring, promoting children to plant gardens and eat healthy food.  I love that our first lady is so involved in these important food issues and taking a active role.  Programs like these reach to people across the country, who have yet to hear the message.  Thank you Michelle!

The episode airs November 10, 2009.

    I read an article lately that said gardening is way up (statisically) in our country. That is great!

    I know that gardening with my Dad made me to love all vegetables and fruit, my children learned to love food by watching it grow and eating from the garden as little ones. Now my school children eat what they grow here at the Montessori Garden School. It’s important the children learn where food really comes from. Those children I’ve had in my classrooms- let’s say 10-20 years ago- really thought food came from the store and could not be swayed. Serious stuff.
    Getting back to the basics of everything- peeled back the surfaces to expose what is raw and eternal.
