Garden Journal


A family's discovery of sustainable gardening, native plants, local food and other treasures in their mid Atlantic backyard.

Hands on Heritage -Exploring Community Museumscover_feb2012 is my new article, in February’s Washington Parent Magazine. It features 3 community based museums with interactive family activities that take you back in time while exploring the cultures of local residents. Plan family outings to each of these museums located in Great Falls, VA, Anacostia/Southeast, DC and Sandy Spring, MD. Each museum provides a differerent snapshot of the diverse communities that built the greater DC Metro region. Expand your family’s sense of place to the larger community through connections you discover to the past.
