First Lady Michelle Obama is no stranger to talk shows. After all, she appeared on Oprah’s show not too long ago to talk about her Joining Forces project, which helps to serve military families in need. But reality television is a different animal.

Still, the First Lady will be appearing on a reality show this fall as she lends her efforts to “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” The ABC show is a notorious tearjerker as it aims to provide needy families and individuals with a major renovation to their home, which is revealed in a grand gesture at the end of each episode to much crying and hugging.

Obama will be taking on a slightly different project as she joins the crew this week in Fayetteville, North Carolina to work on a homeless shelter for female veterans. As part of the renovations, Obama will help out in building a children’s play area and a greenhouse, both of which are right up the garden-friendly First Lady’s alley. 

Though the episode shoots this week, it will not air until sometime in October, so you’ll have to wait until then to see the finished product. We can be sure that Obama will make a point of talking up Joining Forces, but will she find the time to talk about organic gardening too?
