I enjoyed many aspects of this book First off, learning about the caring intentions of Michelle was impressive and significant; secondly, learning about gardening and how we learn to do this collectively as they did at the Whitehouse was very interesting. There are recipes, great photo's and more. Worth picking up.

Leading the locally grown movement, starting with the White House lawn, Michelle Obama is a stunning woman on so many levels. Also has the cutest dog on the planet - Bo who inspects the garden on a daily basis.
