The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America. By Michelle Obama Every president finds some way to leave a legacy at the White House, whether exotic trees and flowers or a grazing sheep on the South lawn. While there have been many gardens, not since Eleanor Roosevelt has anyone grown food on the White House lawn. First Lady Michelle Obama, a passionate spokesperson in the fight against poor nutrition and obesity related illness, has created a thriving vegetable garden during her time there. She has combined a love of healthy living and a desire to work with children and communities to create the kitchen garden beautifully pictured throughout this engaging book. Community volunteers, White House chefs, elementary school children and master gardeners came together to create this project, which is chronicled from conception to harvest. Proceeds from the book go to the National Parks Foundation to be used for promotion of gardening and healthy eating. Hardcover 272 pp Learn More$29.98

by Theodore James, Jr. Acclaimed garden author James and garden photographer Harry Haralambou take us on an enjoyable and enlightening tour of their gardens as they evolve through the seasons.

On this property they have put an Alpine, water, shade, perennial, Japanese, shrub, woodland and secret gardens. All come together beautifully to fulfill James' guiding concept that "a garden should be a series of events, spectacles, and occurrences that continue throughout the four seasons." Over 200 color photographs help readers experience all the pleasures of events and seasons in their garden. Hardcover 130pp. Pub at $29.95 Learn More
