Garden Journal


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

Thanks to the Cub Scouts, the Jenkins family and Ms Tunis for delivering native tree nuts to the Potomac Conservancy’s drop off bin at the Abundant Backyard tent. These nuts are grown into native hardwood seedlings to support expanding reforestation and restoration efforts in the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay watersheds. Click on the logo above for information on how you can volunteer to replenish the seeds and ensure diversity by collecting acorns, walnuts, flowering dogwood, pawpaw and many other hardwood and shrub seeds. You can still collect nuts through October 31!
