First lady Melania Trump rolled up her sleeves and joined with a group of children to harvest and plant vegetables in the First Lady's Kitchen Garden.
The first lady talked with children from the Boys and Girls Club of Washington before tending to the garden.
Melania Trump waters some newly planted vegetables in the White House Garden.
The garden was a project of former first lady Michelle Obama.
A senior adviser to the first lady told CNN, "Mrs. Trump is committed to the preservation and continuation of the White House Gardens."
Former first lady Michelle Obama first planted in 2009 prior to announcing her platform of preventing childhood obesity.
Fruits, vegetables and herbs from the garden were often used in food preparation for White House events, CNN reports.
The food collected was also distributed to local food banks.
The White House said the first lady and the children planted cabbage, cauliflower, turnips, carrots, spinach and kale.
Politico reports Melania Trump told the kids, "I'm a big believer in healthy eating because it reflects on your mind and your body."
