First Lady Michelle Obama planted the White House kitchen garden in 2009 in an effort to spark a national conversation around health and wellness, and it has since become a centerpiece in her Let's Move campaign. In addition to providing fresh produce to the White House kitchen, the garden has blossomed over the last seven years to become a learning destination for local DC schoolchildren and visiting students from across the US; as a hands-on environmental classroom, the garden is host to many guests and lessons throughout the year focused on nutrition and healthy choices.
Watch the video above to join the Eater team on a private tour of the garden — including the newly planted turnip crop — led by Deb Eschmeyer and Kelly Miterko, executive and deputy directors respectively of Let’s Move.
