White House fall garden tour
Share with others:
In last week's Food & Flavor section, Miriam's Garden columnist Miriam Rubin wrote about her visit to the White House Kitchen Garden. Now, the rest of us have an opportunity to tread in her lucky footsteps, as part of next month's White House Fall Garden Tour.
Offered on four occasions, the tour will include stops in the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden outside the East Wing in addition to the country's most famous veggie garden. Tourgoers also will get a peek at the famed Rose Garden bordering the Oval Office and the South Lawn, sometimes referred to as the White House's "back yard."
The timed tickets from the National Park Service are free, but you will have to stand in line at the Ellipse Visitor Pavilion at 15th and E streets on each tour day beginning at 8 a.m. They'll be distributed one-ticket-per-person (including small children) on a first-come, first-served basis.
Tours are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 13 and 20 and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 14 and 19. For more information, visit www.whitehouse.gov.
