Former First Lady Michelle Obama had an idea. A big, inspiring, and exciting idea! She would grow the largest kitchen garden ever at the White House. This wouldn’t be easy, since she’d never gardened before. But where should she start? What tools did she need? What would she plant?

Everyone needs help when they’re learning something for the first time, even the First Lady of the United States. So she gathered the help of local students, the White House staff, and even President Barack Obama. Together, they wouldn’t just grow a garden–they would inspire a nation!
