You’re Invited: White House Spring Garden Tours

This weekend, the White House will open its gardens and grounds to visitors to see the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, the Rose Garden, and our favorite, the White House Kitchen Garden. Just last week, the First Lady, along with kids from Let’s Move! programs across the country, planted the seventh annual White House Kitchen Garden, and this weekend, you can come check it out for yourself!
