Even though it's pretty sleepy around here, the Arboretum is just as beautiful over the winter. Here are some pictures from our recent wanderings through the conifer collection, which is our program director Kaifa's favorite collection.

Welcome to the blog of the Washington Youth Garden. Founded in 1971, we are one of the longest standing educational youth gardens in the country. We are located at the U.S. National Arboretum - 446 acres of green delight located a few miles from the Capitol in Northeast DC.
We have lots going on in the garden and would love to share that with you. Warning: this blog contains many, many pictures of cute kids with vegetables.
