GC AutumnFest 2018

AutumnFest at Glencarlyn Library Garden The annual AutumnFest at Glencarlyn Library Community Garden is back this year on Sunday, September 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is better than ever with more nature-related information and products. Located at 300 South Kensington Street in Arlington, this Master Gardener demonstration garden will once again host a family celebration of all that is Fall, including free herbal treats to taste, face painting, and herbal sachets to make and take home. A naturalist will be on hand with a critter, Tree Stewards, Master Gardeners and Audubon at Home will all be there to answer questions and provide helpful information. 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 glencarlynlibrarygarden@gmail.com, calling 703-244-7309 or at www.mgnv.org.
