WASHINGTON–First Lady Michelle Obama presides over the fall harvest of her White House garden on Wednesday. The last planting was June 3. New this year: The first “Let’s Move!” Tweetup. Some folks will be invited to attend, selected via applications submitted at the White House Tweetup site.

From the East Wing’s Let’s Move: “On Wednesday October 5th, First Lady Michelle Obama will host local students at the White House for the 2011 Fall Garden Harvest. The Garden Harvest will also mark the first ever Let’s Move! Tweetup, an opportunity for @LetsMove followers on Twitter to come to the White House to watch the garden harvest, meet the White House chefs, tour the kitchen garden and engage in a conversation on the First Lady’s initiative to end childhood obesity.”
