Alexandria Earth DayMaster Gardener Silvia Boada-Salom organized a contingent of MGNV volunteers to staff a table at this year’s Alexandria Earth Day celebration, held at Lenny Harris Memorial Fields at Braddock Park on Mt. Vernon Ave., on Saturday, April 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This year’s theme was Clean Water Starts With You and featured exhibits from the city’s water and sewage utilities as well as many other exhibits and demonstrations.
Silvia and other volunteers passed out free seed packets, offered soil testing kits, and distributed extension information on planting times, sustainable landscaping, pollinators, and other gardening practices.
