Mother’s Day
Sunday, May 12th 

American Grown:  The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Garden Across American by Michelle Obama made it’s debut May 2012.  I can not say enough about the book.  I purchased several copies last year at $30 each and now can purchase the same hardcover for $17 at the link below and orders placed by Tuesday, May 7th will be delivered by Friday, May 10th.  This stunning book will make a perfect Mother’s Day Gift.  You do not have to be a gardener to appreciate this book.

Michelle Obama’s book was released May 29, 2012
On May 7th at Politics and Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C., Mrs. Obama will have her second-ever autograph party.  She signed copies of her book at a DC Barnes & Noble last year.  The lavishly photographed tome [a large weighty book], released in 2012 includes a detailed history of the first three years of the Kitchen Garden and the Let’s Move! campaign, and stories about healthy food projects across the nation, including school, community and urban gardens. The White House chefs provide Kitchen Garden-inspired recipes and commentary, and there are tips for gardens of all sizes.”Mrs. Obama accepted no advance for American Grown and all author proceeds will go to the National Park Foundation (www.nationalparks.org), the official charity of America’s national parks,” the White House said.

“Funds will be used for programs that promote gardening and healthy eating and give young people the opportunity to experience the outdoors and lead more active lives, as well as for the continued care of the White House Kitchen Garden.  Random House will also donate a portion of its profits to the National Park Foundation,” the White House said.
