The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden (A new video)


Today, the White House released a brand new video about The White House Kitchen Garden, featuring interviews with First Lady Michelle Obama and White House Chef Sam Kass.

As Mrs. Obama explains, “The garden is really an important introduction to what I hope will be a new way that our country thinks about food.  So that’s the story of the garden, and it’s been an amazing success if I do say so myself.”

Watch the video, and then please thank Michelle Obama for her incredible garden here.
