The White House kitchen garden, part of Michelle Obama's campaign to encourage healthful eating, was established in 2009. Every president living in the White House has made changes to the building, its furnishings, and/or its grounds. Mrs. Obama's garden is one of many ways presidents and their families have used the land.This book tells the story of the White House grounds, the other gardens (including Eleanor Roosevelt's Victory Garden in World War II) that have grown there, the White House children who have played there, and the teamwork, involving local children as well as the Obama family and White House staff, that led to the kitchen garden now flourishing on the South Lawn. The first book for children on this subject, First Garden is a lighthearted, entertaining, and lavishly illustrated introduction to this inspiring and much-publicized project.
