…was not always GREEN. When the First Lady got to the White House she made it a priority to start a garden on the South Lawn. Gardening at the White House is a tradition that dates back way before our time, but Mrs. Obama also wanted to teach her daughters about healthy living and meals that are locally grown.
This past April the First Lady came out with a new book, American Grown: How the White House Kitchen Garden Inspires Families, Schools, and Communities, about her experiences with gardening and how she “grew” her green thumb. She shares about the struggles and joys she found in her garden.
If you enjoy your garden, you might want to check out this book. And note, that all proceeds from the book go to charity; it’s a win-win GREEN situation ;-)
