Visit the Organic Vegetable Garden!
One of the best ways to learn about vegetable gardening is to see long established gardens in action. Make time this year to visit the Organic Vegetable Garden in north Arlington at Potomac Overlook Regional Park, one of the seven demonstration gardens operated by Master Gardeners of Northern Virginia.
May 1, 2022 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
As part of Florafest at Potomac Overlook Park, Extension Master Gardeners from the Organic Vegetable Garden will lead tours of the garden and be available to discuss all things about vegetable gardening in Northern Virginia. Visitors to the garden can bring their questions to the pop-up plant clinic, and there will be activities for children focusing on seeds, including planting seeds in pots to take home.
