My name is Connie Bateman and I am a Garden Educator for Granny’s Garden School.   I think our program organization is one that could be a model for others and would like First Lady Michelle Obama to add it to her upcoming tour of school garden programs.

We have started a letter writing campaign to have the students that have benefited from Granny’s Garden School to help us in this effort.  This week the garden educators will be asking their classes to write letters inviting Mrs. Obama to visit Granny’s Garden School.  We will be collecting them at the end of the week to mail to Senator Portman, Rep. Wenstrup and the White House in an effort to be considered as a stop on her tour.

If you have a child in the program, you send your letter to be included in the packages.  If not, the addresses are below.   The letters need to be in the mail by April 15.
