The Southwest Gardens will host its 11th Spring Kickoff on Saturday, April 27th from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The event is open to the public and all are welcome. 

The garden is located in Lansburgh Park at 1098 Delaware Avenue SW. The garden has 10 communal beds, two food fences, three herb beds, a sunflower alley, an orchard, and pollinator gardens that all need some TLC. Join in for a day of planting, preparing the garden beds, fruit tree care, and a paint craft activity for gardeners of all ages. Gloves and tools provided. 

If these activities don’t appeal to you, please come and enjoy meeting neighbors in your community garden. Our weekly communal hours will return in May and be held every Wednesday from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. and Sundays from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. (weather permitting).
