Green Spring Gardens connects the community to natural and cultural resources through horticulture, education, and stewardship. Since 1970, Green Spring has developed gardens that demonstrate a range of gardening and design styles and that feature plants that grow well in local gardens.The Rock Garden, the Edible Garden, the Children's Garden, and the Water-Wise Garden are a few of the many different horticultural displays in the park.
Through its demonstration gardens and educational programming, Green Spring Gardens advances the awareness and practice of gardening in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. Horticulture programs include lectures, workshops, the Harry Allen Winter Lecture Series, symposia, the “Garden Talks” series, garden tours, and getaway tours. See the Classes and Camps web page for upcoming programs and events.
