Open Garden Invitation

Washington Gardener Magazine’s Open Garden is back by popular demand! Everyone is invited to their annual gathering, which is also a celebration of their 10th anniversary!
   On Sunday, August 23rd, from 5-7PM stop by with your gardening questions, see the trial gardens in progress, or just come hang out with us for some late-summer tropical fun!
   Come if you have to renew or subscribe to the Washington Gardener Magazine in person, purchase gift subscriptions to the magazine, or come pluck a weed or two as a souvenir! Single copies of Washington Gardener Magazine back issues and current issues will also be for sale.
   Take photos of whatever is in bloom for our upcoming Garden Photo Contest and enjoy light refreshments and cold drinks. Children’s activities include ping-pong throw, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and a fairy garden while adults peruse the information table on various area garden events and groups. There will even be surprises and prizes.
   The Open Garden is shine or light rain. We’ll quickly duck in the gazebo if it drizzles. In  case of a big storm, the rain date is Sunday, August 30th same timing and other deals. Please pass this invite on to your DC-area gardening friends and family.
  Dress in your best compost couture (i.e. natural fibers) and see you there!

Come to the corner of Fenton Street and Philadelphia Ave. /Rt. 410), Silver Spring, MD - then go into the garden party area which is inside the white fence directly across from the Public Storage building at 7800 Fenton
Look for the pink flamingos!
Please walk, bike, bus, metro, or car-pool. We are a 10-15 minute walk from either the Silver Spring and Takoma Park metro stops. Also, several Metro and Ride-On bus routes run right by.
If driving, there is limited free parking nearby on King Street , but there is much more available in the public garages/lots along Fenton and at the old police station on Sligo Avenue a few blocks away
