Fun in Vienna VA Next Weekend!

If you ‘re going to be in Vienna VA next weekend, be sure to check out the Native Plant Sale and Vienna Home and Garden Tour – Focus on Sustainabilityimage

The plant sale will be held in the Community Center parking lot (120 Cherry St SE) on Saturday, 9/15 – rain or shine.  There will be a large selection of native plants for the fall planting season at great prices! Native plants are easy to care for, consume less water, and many are deer resistant. Fall is a great time to plant, as there is less heat stress for your new plants. To protect your trunk and to reduce the use of new plastic, please bring bags or boxes to carry your plants home.

On Sunday, be sure to check out the Vienna Home and Garden Tour -- Focus on Sustainability (from noon to 4pm).  Parking and maps will be available at the Vienna Community Center.  Visitors are encouraged to bike or walk the tour!  Your neighbors are opening their homes and gardens to you to show and discuss modifications that they have made to make Vienna a more sustainable community. Visit all or some of them to learn more about solar power generation, energy efficiency, geothermal heating and cooling,native plants and gardening with deer.  For an online list of the homes go to:
