Présentation de l'éditeur
Through her very personal telling of the story behind the White House Kitchen Gardens, First Lady Michelle Obama examines how increased access to wholesome, affordable food can promote better eating habits and improved health.
Mrs Obama describes how her daughters, Sasha and Malia, were the catalysts for change in her own family's eating behaviour and inspired her to plant a vegetable garden on the White House's South Lawn - the first of its kind since Eleanor Roosevelt's Victory Garden.
Illustrated throughout with more than 200 photographs, many never seen before, the book reveals a year in the life of the garden. It includes practical advice from the White House Kitchen Garden Team for growing a whole range of produce, from herbs and salads to squashes, aubergines and berries, whatever sized space you have. There are also delicious seasonal recipes, like Spring Pea Salad, Sweet Potato Quick Bread, and Braised Pork Shoulder with Butternut Squash and Greens.
With inspirational top tips for developing community and school gardens, advice on how to get involved in your local farmers' market, and ideas to help you grow your own, Michelle Obama shares the pleasures and endless benefits of home-grown food.

I am shocked at the negativity it has produced. As I expected, the negative reviewers were only interested in spewing hateful words and political outbursts.
I want to know what is happening to this country. At least I respect the office and the people in it, no matter their politics. Each election year brings more hatred than the last.
This book was written to highlight the danger our children and grandchildren are in with regard to their health. The first lady at least is trying to do something about it.
This story began on March, 20, 2009, as the Obamas were finally getting settled into the White House. Mrs. Obama's mother had just moved in and Michelle was contemplating something she had never done before, planting a garden. That was the day that they broke ground for the White House vegetable garden.
She takes readers back to other White House Gardens, most notably, to the Victory Gardens that helped to get our country through war. There are some wonderful old photos here.
This is a real hands on gardening book. It is broken down by seasons and there are illustrations of various garden plots. Obviously this book was a team effort. We meet the WH gardening team. There are all kinds of gardening tips, recipes, and anecdotes, here.
This book has so many wonderful photos and illustrations! I can't wait to try out this recipe for collard greens! This book makes me proud to be an American. Thanks to you, Mrs. Obama!
across the country, and spanning the seasons. There are delicious looking recipes at
the end of the book. We see and hear about the White House Garden, which I loved the
idea of from day one.
This book is about communities, generosity and nutrition. This is about children, the aging
and dogs . This is a book about everything you want to think about in the summer, and what
you should want to think about year round. Planning is one of the keys, sharing is another. And
of course, a garden gets us moving so it is very much a book about what is important to this first
lady. Children, nutrition, good healthy food and living. I will pick this up many times in the future.
It makes me smile :)
