Maryland’s First Lady Opens Vegetable Garden

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s first lady, Katie O’Malley, is opening a backyard vegetable garden at the governor’s house in Annapolis. 

Master gardeners from the University of Maryland and students from the Cedar Chapel Special School in Worcester County helped plant the first summer vegetable seedlings Saturday. The students grew the plants in their school greenhouse. 

O’Malley is opening a “Grow It, Eat It” garden to encourage healthy eating by growing your own vegetables, fruits and herbs. The campaign aims to encourage 1 million Marylanders to produce their own healthy foods. 

O’Malley’s office says Maryland is one of the first states with a backyard food garden at the governor’s home. It follows a similar model from first lady Michelle Obama at the White House.
