Thank you to everyone who managed the July heat to be with us for the 5th Annual Green Spaces for DC Meet + Greet Event. Those who made it were rewarded with good food and great conversation with a magical sunset over the Anacostia River and the poetry of Melanie Choukas-Bradley embracing the splendors of our earth.
It was wonderful and heartwarming to connect with so many supporters and partners. Special thanks to Melanie, author of The Joy of Forest Bathing, City of Trees and A Year in Rock Creek Park, all donated to the event’s Silent Auction, and to our many other sponsors, including the Earth Conservation Corps for providing the space for this venue for the past five years. Other sponsors and Silent Auction Sponsors include:
Green Bee Café
A. Charles Photography
A Few Cool Hardware Stores (Logan Hardware)
Pottery by Nance Gillette
Twin Oaks Tavern Winery (Evers & Co, Real Estate)
Word of Mouth Catering
Remember that we are an all-volunteer effort. Every penny we raise goes to support the hometown DC green spaces organizations we sponsor. If you care about what we do and have the wherewithal, please make an online donation. Thanks to all those who already given — we can’t survive without you!
See you next year, if not before. -- John Henderson, President - Carol Truppi, Chair
