All the Presidents’ Gardens Talk & Book Signing with author, Marta McDowell

Award winning author Marta McDowell will share rare glimpses into Presidential pastimes and little-known facts of how the 18-acres surrounding the White House have been an unwitting witness to history. Refreshingly light-hearted and nonpartisan, McDowell reveals how the story of the presidential garden is also the story of America. Starting with plant-obsessed George Washington and ending with Michelle Obama’s kitchen garden. History buffs will revel in the fascinating tidbits about Lincoln’s goats, Ike’s putting green, Jackie’s iconic roses, and Amy Carter’s tree house. Gardeners will enjoy the information on the plants whose favor has come and gone over the years and the gardeners who have been responsible for it all.
Registration required. $25 members; $35 non-members or $50 members; $60 non-members, with book.
