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.
