Our 5th Anniversary Celebration is Sunday, 5.23

You are invited:

• Sunday, May 23, 2:00-3:330pm
The Future of Local Gardening Panel Discussion moderated by Kathy Jentz, Washington Gardener Magazine's editor/publisher. Come join us after the panel for cupcakes and a sip of something bubbly to mark Washington Gardener Magazine’s 5th Anniversary in print.

We will host a panel discussion on local garden trends and the future of urban gardening in the 21st. Local experts will share their views and we anticipate a lively discussion of where we’ve been and where we are headed next.
Our guest panelists are:

~ Angela Treadwell-Palmer, President of of Plants Nouveau (http://www.plantsnouveau.com/) on plants being bred now and coming soon to retail and your home garden. What exciting new traits and developments are in store?
~ John Peter Thompson of Invasive Notes (ipetrus.blogspot.com) on proposed invasive species laws and the impact of invasives and exotics. Will all non-native ornamental plants soon be banned from import?
~ Sylvia H Wright, author of From Eco-weak to Eco-chic on climate change and enviro-impacts. Is global warming going to make the Lilac a plant of the past in the Mid-Atlantic?

Washington Gardener Magazine, the gardening publication published specifically for the local metro area — Washington DC and its suburbs. We sent out our premiere issue in March/April 2005. The magazine is written entirely by local area gardeners.

This event is part of the DC Urban Gardening Talk series. Presented by Washington Gardener Magazine and the Historic Society of Washington DC. FREE to attend. This event is open to the public.

This is at the Historic Society of Washington, DC
801 K Street, NW
     at Mount Vernon Square
     Washington, DC 20001
Take the Metro or bus - just across from the DC Convention Center

If YOU were a contributor in any way to the magazine these past 5 years whether writing a book review, submitting a My Garden Story, sending in photos, etc., I'd especially like YOU to be there on Sunday so I can thank you in person for supporting the magazine.

UPDATE:  This IS a networking event and we encourage you to bring your business cards, brochures, etc., to exchange and put out on our Local Garden Information table.
