DC Gardens is a grassroots, independent media campaign using images of DC-area gardens by month to entice people to discover them. DC Gardens is also a hub of info that helps locals learn to garden and connect with the gardening and greening community.

Coming March 2, 2015:  The launch of the DC Gardens Indiegogo campaign with the goal of collecting $25,000 to finance operations for all of 2015, our demonstration year. Money will go primarily to contract with Washington Gardener Magazine editor Kathy Jentz to do regular digital outreach to the travel, general and gardening media, locally and beyond. Funds are also needed for graphic design and website design. It’s hoped that the success of this comprehensive yet inexpensive campaign in 2015 will attract long-term sponsors to DCGardens.com.

The first of our monthly DCGardens Updates will contain info about major garden-related events in our region during March and April, plus images of what the major gardens will look like then. Subscribe in the sign-up form in the sidebar.
