This year AutumnFest also offers visitors a chance to visit the oldest house in Arlington, the Ball-Sellers House, a farm home from the 1740s with a wonderful garden. Visitors to the Ball-Sellers home can create an herbal craft project and enjoy a tasty colonial treat.
Gardeners know that fall is a great time to plant, and can purchase locally native plants from Hill House Nursery, and pumpkins, potpourri and blooming plants and herbs from Country Gardens. Local vendors will also be on hand offering bee houses, honey, compost tea, handcrafted jewelry and T-shirts with artwork featuring butterflies and their host plants. The sale raises funds to keep the demonstration garden operating, and is free to the public. More information is available by emailing email@example.com, calling 703-244-7309 or at www.mgnv.org.
