FLOTUS comes to SD

First Lady Michelle Obama last week made her first visit to San Diego since moving into the White House, and I got to cover her for the Union-Tribune.

She visited the New Roots Community Farm in the City Heights neighborhood. The 2.2 acre  farm was created last July by a diverse mix of the immigrants from Africa, South Asia and Latin America who call the area home.

Obama went there to promote her Let’s Move campaign which is aimed at eliminating childhood obesity and expanding access to fresh, nutritious food.

I took these pics with my iPhone and posted them immediately on my work Twitter account. Click on them to view them larger.
