Michelle Obama Releases Gardening Book

First Lady Michelle Obama published her book about gardening with Crown today. In American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America, Obama recounts how she first got into gardening.

Obama’s gardening efforts have been part of her agenda to encourage healthy eating and fight childhood obesity. The book is timed perfectly for summer gardening season, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s an election year

The Associated Press has more: “The $30 book… traces how a city kid from the South Side of Chicago who became a working mother and then a political spouse found herself fretting on that first planting day, March 20, 2009, about whether an L-shaped stretch of soil would prove fertile ground for a national conversation ‘about the food we eat, the lives we lead, and how all of that affects our children.’”.
