As part of the 2012 White House Fall Garden Tours, we invited 50 of our followers on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ for a private tour of the White House gardens. They enjoyed the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, Rose Garden, and South Lawn, including the White House Kitchen Garden. Along the way, the participants learned about the gardens from Grounds Superintendent Dale Haney and Supervisor Horticulturalist Jim Adams, and even had a surprise sighting of the President walking to the West Wing. 

At the end of the tour, they came inside to talk and tweet with Deputy Director of Digital Strategy Katelyn Sabochik, Executive Pastry Chef Bill Yosses, Official White House Photographer Sonya Hebert, and Director of the Office of Public Engagement Jon Carson.
