Maria Shriver Has Plans for Edible Garden in Sacramento

20090326-shriver.jpgCalifornia's First Lady Maria Shriver is piggybacking off Michelle Obama's big choice to bring an edible garden to the White House lawn. Earlier this week, Shriver said an 800-square-foot garden will be planted on the east end of the Capitol building in Sacramento, replacing an existing flower bed, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

She's isn't totally new to the urban garden scene. In October of 2006, Shriver launched the state's inaugural California School Garden Week, where schools all over California raised shrub-pulling awareness. No word yet on what crops will be planted but, of course, the public garden dame herself Alice Waters will be helping out.
