Begun in 2000, this Master Gardeners of Northern Virginia demonstration garden enjoys a successful collaboration with Potomac Overlook Regional Park. The park’s many environmental and cultural activities draw people to the garden, as do school field trips and summer nature camps. The focus of this garden is organic, urban vegetable gardening. An on-site water system, (including a rain barrel) and 20 foot high “wildlife exclusion” fence all support an active gardening program. For more information about the garden and the Master Gardeners of Northern Virginia, visit www.mgnv.org.
Potomac Overlook staff and volunteers maintain a native plant and butterfly garden, the Indian Circle Garden, and many others around the park. The Arlington Master Naturalists and Audubon Society also maintain a Native Shade Garden in the park. All of our gardens are open all year from dawn till dusk.
