Michelle Obama is set to visit Sesame Street yet again! Earlier this year, the First Lady appeared in a PSA with Elmo promoting healthy living. Now, drawing on experiences at home in the White House garden, Obama will teach the furry “residents” of Sesame Street about the benefits of growing veggies and healthy living. She will also show children how to plant tomato, cucumber and lettuce seeds.

“All these seeds need to grow are sun, soil and water. If you eat these healthy foods, you’re going to grow up to be big and strong, like me,” the First Lady says. “I know you’re going to like these vegetables, because in addition to being healthy, they really taste great!”

In addition to home gardening, the new season will also kick off a new two-year science initiative called “My World is Green & Growing.” Additional celebrities slated to make appearances include actresses Cameron Diaz, Eva Longoria-Parker, UK comedian Ricky Gervais and basketball star Kobe Bryant.

The 40th season of Sesame Street premieres November 10th.
