Michelle Obama Tours Community Farm










San Diego, California was the last stop on Michelle Obama's first solo trip abroad as First Lady. She's focusing on children, in particular their eating and exercise habits. The First Lady toured an urban farm in San Diego Thursday.

It was a fairly short visit by the First Lady. She spent about an hour and a half at the community farm talking with farmers as well as trying some of the produce, looking at some of the fruits and vegetables being grown here.

The First Lady highlighted the community farm as an example of what should be happening across the country.
