UDC invited us to help plant its “sensory garden” two years ago. A week from today we’re invited back – to see how this garden grows, and to help tidy it up.
From the university’s College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences:
[box]Join CAUSES next Friday, June 19th, along with DC Master Gardeners and other volunteers as we tend to the UDC Garden of the Senses. Come prepared to get your hands dirty, helping us with weeding, planting, composting and mulching behind Building 41 on the Van Ness campus. Tools and light refreshments will be provided. 9:00 a.m. to noon. RSVP here![/box]
The Garden of the Senses is planted with flora that appeal to three of our senses: vision, smell and touch. This is what it looked like as it was installed in August 2013 (all photos courtesy of UDC/CAUSES):
