The White House kitchen garden

American Grown by Michelle Obama

In april 2009, first lady Michelle Obama planted a kitchen garden on The White House’s south lawn. As fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs sprouted from the ground, this White House kitchen garden inspired a new conversation all across the country about the food we feed our families and the impact it has on the health and well-being of our children.

Now, in her first-ever book Mrs Obama shares its inspiring story, from the first planting to the latest harvest.  Hear about her worries as a novice gardener – would the new plants even grow? Learn about her struggles and her joys as lettuce, corn, tomatoes, collards and kale, sweet potatoes and rhubarb flourished in the freshly tilled soil.
