Holiday greens workshop

Each December, the club holds a Holiday Greens Workshop in which members make small festive arrangements using greens cut from their gardens. Photos and more information about our December 2023 workshop are here

Annual picnic 

In early June, the club organizes an annual picnic for its membership, which features a guided tour of a notable regional garden or an inspiring garden-related destination, followed by a luncheon. In the past, members have enjoyed visits to such popular sites as Mount Vernon, near Alexandria, VA; Lewis Ginter Arboretum, further afield in Richmond, VA; Baltimore City’s Cylburn Arboretum; and in Suitland, MD, the Smithsonian Gardens Greenhouse Facility.

Open gardens

Members have an opportunity to schedule a morning, afternoon, or evening to open their garden to the membership, inviting members to view, share ideas, gain advice, or simply enjoy the camaraderie of gardeners—outdoors.
