But, there are so many great outdoor and green activities planned around DC that don't make this list. Here are just a few:
There are some great classes offered at the National Arboretum. I'm going to one this Saturday on tomato grafting!
- The good folks at Good Sense Farm are just one of the vendors supporting this year's Honey Groove Fest on April 9 beginning a 4pm. Apparently, there will be twerking!
- Community Forklift is offering several classes this month - on canning, herbs and masonry. Support these good folks!
- On April 16, Common Good City Farm will be having their kick off celebration. There will be herb walks, seedlings for sale, kid's activities and a cookout! Fun!
- And, don't forget the annual Kingman Island Bluegrass Festival to be held on April 30! You'll need a ticket to get into this year's event (which is a good thing as it's become too crowded). There are still tickets left.
And, while you're at it, why not do your own Earth Month and Earth Day adventure. Rent a kayak or canoe at the KeyBridge Boathouse to explore the Potomac or at the Ball Park Boathouse to explore the Anacostia. Maybe you'll even see one of the bald eagles!! Give up straws, reduce your plastic footprint, make some of your own food, ride your bike! There are plenty of ways to celebrate this great month!
Get outside and take it all in!
