Garden-Filled Weekend Ahead

The weekend is another full-throttle affair. Starting off Saturday at the Smithsonian's Garden Fest -- free and for the whole family on the National Mall. Lots of hands-on activities and sights to see. I'm bringing my camera and supplying a drawing prize.


Moving on to an afternoon of tours with the Garden Conservancy. Isn't it great that this has been brought back to the DC-area? It was such a shame to be without it for the past few years. Thanks to Jane MacLeish and Lee Wilkinson for making it happen! We get to peak behind the gates of some of DC's most affluent and distinguished gardens (and Bethesda/Chevy Chase too). I'm prepared to be green with garden envy.

Then Sunday is an all-day Community Green event at AHS River Farm, and before you ask, "Where?" Think of going to Mt Vernon and then picture an estate a few miles up the road closer to Alexandria. There is an entry fee, but look at the speaker schedule including Green Man Joe Keyser, Garden Ranter Susan Harris, and Bulb Expert Brent Heath. Then take a look at the rest of great events on the schedule. I think it is well worth the price and benefits a great cause. We'll have a tent/table there and offer Community Green attendees 10% off our normal subscription rate so $18 instead of $20 for signing up at the event.
