From DC Gardens to DC Outdoors


In July of 2016 DC Gardens ended a 16-month demonstration period of actively promoting gardens and gardening via e-newsletters, social media, and in-person events. We hope they can be resumed and expanded on to include all of DC’s green spaces. Here’s the idea: It’s Time for DC’s Green Spaces to Get Some Love.
