Agriculture Executive Master Gardner Judy Akinola, tries to keep up with long lines of people wanting âAbraham Lincolnâ Tomato plants during the giveaway of hundreds of fruit and vegetable seedlings to encourage people to get involved in community gardening and sharing their harvest with those in need, during the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) summer farmers market opening of its 17th season at the USDA Whitten Building east parking lot in Washington, D.C. on Friday, May 31, 2012. USDA volunteers cultivated the seedlings. This year's theme is Grow, Healthy, Eat Healthy and Be Healthy. USDA and Fuel Up to Play 60, in partnership with the National Dairy Council and the National Football League, invited residence, visitors and local school children to participate in opening day activities. Hip Hop Public Health featuring Easy A.D. from Cold Crush Brothers and disk jockey Artie Green play music and invite people to get up on stage to dance or hula hoop to get active. D.C. Truck Farm helps people know from what plants, herbs, fruit and produce come from by giving tail-gate tours of the garden growing in the bed of their pickup truck. The Peoples Garden Initiative and USDA Executive Master Gardeners gave away a variety of fruit and produce seedlings to include the âAbraham Lincolnâ Tomato in celebration of the USDA 150th Anniversary and to share their harvest. New features for 2012 include an on-site sign language interpreter, a hand washing station, and a USDA-certified organic vendor.
