The following passage comes from a Washington Post article:

It was a moment eight months in the making: "Melania Trump bounding down the White House lawn to the vegetable garden made famous by her predecessor."

I can't understand the context of passage.

Is above passage inversion of below passage?

Bounding down the White House lawn to the vegetable garden made Melania Trump famous by her predecessor.

  • No, it was the vegetable garden that had been made famous. Presumably a previous First Lady took a special interest in it. – Kate Bunting Oct 10 '17 at 7:54
  • Please include links to anything you quote from the internet – AmE speaker Oct 10 '17 at 11:38
  • It is not, and please explain how the Question belongs here and not, for instance, at English Language Learners? – Robbie Goodwin Oct 10 '17 at 22:33

The vegetable garden was made famous by Michelle Obama

So your inversion is wrong. It might help if you inserted some words, possibly

Melania Trump [was seen] bounding down the White House lawn to the vegetable garden [which had been] made famous by her predecessor [Michelle Obama].
