Synopsis: 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.
