ancient Olive Tree in Pelion Greece -by Dennis Koutou, CCA province in southern Italy has dedicated a 1,400-year-old olive tree known as “The Queen” to US First Lady Michelle Obama because of her commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles.

Local farmers that manage the land where the tree is located said that the roughly 100 litres (26 gallons) of extra-virgin olive oil made from the fruits of the giant tree would be sent to the White House every year starting this fall.

Mrs. Obama planted an organic garden on the White House lawn and advocates a diet rich in vegetables.
