Earth Day Celebration at the U.S. Botanic Garden

Join the United States Botanic Garden for an Earth Day Celebration on the Conservatory Terrace Friday, April 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Numerous programs and children’s activities are being offered and experts will be on hand to lend advice on gardening. Learn about the U.S. Botanic Garden’s Landscape for Life sustainable gardening program and hear fresh ideas for food, health, home and life from other participants. Plan to get your hands dirty by potting a plant to take home or join in for another activity.

Representatives from the U.S. Botanic Garden and area organizations will be on hand to provide information about home and community gardening and how individuals and families can live more sustainably. See the native plants in the National Garden to draw inspiration for your own sustainable gardening. Some of the day’s participants include:
