Bren Haas and I had a chance to have Kathy Jentz and Susan Harris on our Garden Chatter hangout. Kathy and Susan live in the Washington DC area, and they want to promote garden tourism in Washington DC.
To that end they have started DC Gardens to highlight Washington public gardens. They are creating a directory of gardens with corresponding photos and Youtube videos to show visitors what gardens are available and what they look like through the seasons.
To help fund the creation and upkeep of the DC Gardens project, they have launched a fundraiser that will run through April 13th, 2015.

On a recent family spring break trip to Washington DC, the Botanic Garden and Conservatory was a family favorite. That may have been because there were more snowflakes in the air than cherry blossoms. The conservatory was an amazing place to warm up.
I am hoping to get back to to Washington DC sometime soon to see more of the gardens. I will be using DC Gardens as a resource when I do.
If you missed our live Garden Chatter event you can still watch the video below.

We would love it if you joined our Garden Chatter events “live” so you can ask questions and share comments.
When you join the conversation as an audience member, you have access to a Q and A comment box right on your screen. We will see the questions and comments and be able to acknowledge and respond to them during the event.
Tune into Garden Chatter next week as Bren Haas and I will chat with amazing gardeners and experts in their field.
