As part of her Lets Move campaign, First Lady Michelle Obama made a surprise visit to two DC elementary schools, Watkins Elementary and John Burroughs Elementary.
These schools are special because they align with Mrs. Obama’s goals of healthy living for children. Both schools have gardens because of their involvement in Footprints, a program operating in six area elementary schools that combine gardening, cooking and nutrition education in partnership with the Washington Youth Garden.
While learning the basics, such as math and English, students are able to learn how to grow their own food and create healthy measl from the fruits they helped to grow.
