Americans everywhere are struggling just to survive right now. Instead of doing something to help her people, however, First Lady Michelle Obama is dropping everything this week to push her latest ridiculous agenda by planting a garden at a middle school.
According to WJBF, Michelle is visiting Burke County Middle School in Georgia on Thursday as part of the American Garden Tour to highlight the importance of diverse gardens across the country. She will be arriving at the school at 11 am to help students plant a garden.
Here’s more information about this event:

The First Lady will continue her American Garden Tour to highlight the impact and benefits of diverse gardens across the country. Earlier this year, Mrs. Obama surprised students who participate in gardening programs at Watkins Elementary School and John Burroughs Elementary School in Washington, DC, along with a local family, who has made their backyard garden a community effort. In case you missed it, watch the video of the surprise visits HERE.
Burke County, Georgia * 11:00AM ET – The First Lady will visit Burke County Middle School and join students to plant the school garden.
Rural Burke County has a Farm to School Program that provides farm fresh produce to their students daily. By offering local, fresh fruits and vegetables, the school district found that student consumption rates of fruits and vegetables doubled. Burke County Middle School is home to the county’s STEM-based learning garden, where students are writing a cookbook that incorporates food they are harvesting from their garden. The district also offers a bi-monthly farmers’ market at the high school that showcases the locally grown food, and the district provides cooking demonstrations in class to reinforce the healthy habits being taught in the lunchroom.
As First Lady, there’s so much that Michelle could be doing to help Americans. Planting a garden isn’t going to help anyone. SHARE this story if Michelle Obama makes you SICK!
