All the President’s Gardens

Madison’s Cabbages to Kennedy’s Roses, How the White House Grounds Have Grown with America

The fascinating story of America’s first garden!
The eighteen acres that surround the White House have been an unwitting witness to history–a backdrop for soldiers, suffragettes, protesters, and activists. Kings and queens have dined there; bills and treaties have been signed; and presidents have landed and retreated. The front and back yard for the first family, it is by extension the nation’s first garden.

Books will be available for sale and signed by the author for a cost of $25. (Cash, Credit Cards and Checks accepted.)
