From the most momentous events in our nation’s history to our fleeting cultural obsessions, the White House grounds have been a mirror of America.

Far more than just an account of Lincoln’s goats, Ike’s putting green, and Kennedy’s roses, All the Presidents’ Gardens delves into the captivating events that have shaped our national consciousness.

Marta McDowell, garden historian and best-selling author of “All the Presidents’ Gardens” will present at the Healing Garden Society’s Bloom! symposium on Thursday, April 25, in the Cardinal Ballroom at The Carolina Hotel, Pinehurst.

McDowell will trace the fascinating history of how our presidents and their families left their imprint on the White House grounds.

A wine and cheese reception begins at 5:00 p.m. and the author’s presentation begins at 6:00 p.m. Copies of her award-winning book will be available for purchase and signing.

Tickets are $50 may be purchased at the Clara McLean House, on the campus of FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital, Pinehurst or by emailing FoundationRSVP@firsthealth.org or calling 910-695-7512.

Sponsored by The Healing Garden at the Clara McLean House.
