Urban Trees are Street Smart

Here is the online link to this week's The List: Top Home & Garden Events on page 25 of today's print edition in the Washington Examiner. You can find the Examiner in the many red street-boxes around town. I saved a screen capture of the listing as a JPG and posted it here -- which you can click on to read at 100%.

Here is more info on item #2 - a talk I'm giving as part of the DCUrbanGardener's monthly series.

This Saturday - Urban Trees and Shrubs - Kathy Jentz
WHEN: Saturday, June 14 from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
WHAT: "Small Trees and Large Shrubs for Urban Gardens"
Join Kathy Jentz, editor and publisher of Washington Gardener Magazine, as she explores the possibilities of what small trees and large shrubs you can plant in small urban lots. Tailored to the District of Columbia region and what grows best here, the choices will cover natives, edibles, and ornamentals -- from full sun to full shade. For every place there is a tree that is a perfect fit. Even if you only have a few pots to plant in, a tree can be part of your urban life.
Suitable to ages 12 to Adults.
To RSVP (not required), email or call 202-383-1828.
WHERE: Historical Society of Washington, D.C., 801 K St. NW, Mt. Vernon Square, Washington, D.C. (near Gallery Place Metro).
