Join Master Gardeners of Northern Virginia in celebrating the Simpson Park Demonstration Gardens’ 20th Anniversary on Sunday, September 22, 2013 (from 1:00-4:00 p.m.).  You’ll find a host of flowers, trees, and shrubs that thrive in Northern Virginia, as well as practical ideas for improving and maintaining your own garden without using pesticides.  The gardens demonstrate the use of waterwise plants, plants that attract butterflies and those that release pleasant scents, rock garden and alpine plants, and locally available stone.  Light refreshments will be served.

The Simpson Park Demonstration Gardens, located at East Monroe and Leslie Avenues in Alexandria, are maintained by Master Gardeners of Northern Virginia in support of Virginia Cooperative Extension. Park in the YMCA parking lot.
