Sneak Peek of Michelle Obama Gardening on Sesame Street


Michelle Obama has encouraged all Americans to save a little spot in their yard for growing fresh vegetables. She even brought back the Whitehouse garden, trying to make it organic, until she found out for a long time the lawn was fertilized with raw sewage. But that wasn’t enough to make her quit gardening.

On November 10th, Michelle will drop by Sesame Street to show Elmo and the gang how to grow vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce. Here’s a sneak peek of the episode. And I guess fame has gone to Elmo’s head. He seems a little unwilling to get his hands dirty and dig into the garden too–prima donna!
