"Several Washburn Elementary School students will be among the students helping First Lady Michelle Obama plant the White House Kitchen Garden today.
"This will be the eighth straight year Mrs. Obama has hosted the event. In 2009, she planted a vegetable garden on the South Lawn to initiate a national conversation on the nation’s health and wellbeing. The event evolved into her Let’s Move initiative.
"The Washburn School District currently has a 6,400 square foot school garden and orchard. The elementary grades each maintain a section of the garden and the middle school and high school have classes that use the garden."
