First Lady to Garden on Sesame Street

Michelle Obama will bring her well-known White House gardening skills to the set of Sesame Street for the November 10 premiere of the TV series’ 40th season. The first lady notably initiated the first fruit and vegetable garden at the presidential quarters since WWII and will encourage the show’s viewers to do the same. While planting tomato, cucumber, and lettuce seeds with the street’s famous inanimate tenants, Mrs. Obama will teach the program’s child audience the value of eating healthy and growing one’s own produce. The upcoming 40th season of Sesame Street is part of a two-year initiative called “My World Is Green & Growing.”
