Eating healthier is just a better way of living all the way around. The White House will welcome visitors across the country to their beautiful grounds. This continue the First Lady’s commitment to making the White House “The People’s House”. During these Fall Garden Tours, visitors can view the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, Rose Garden, and South Lawn of the White House.
Additionally, the White House Kitchen Garden – the first vegetable garden at the White House since Eleanor Roosevelt’s Victory Garden – will be accessible to tour guests.
These Garden Tours are free and open to the public; however, a ticket is required for all attendees (including small children). The National Park Service will distribute free, timed tickets at the Ellipse Visitor Pavilion located at 15th and E Streets on each tour day beginning at 8:00 AM. Tickets will be distributed — one ticket per person — on a first-come, first-served basis.
Some more great news announced last week will be the opportunity for social media followers to join us for a special tour of the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, Rose Garden, and South Lawn, including the White House Kitchen Garden on Friday October 19th.
