The Temple Garden on 15th Street is having an open house this Saturday, July 16. Everyone is invited to the 10 am to 4 pm event, according to the Garden event organizers. The community garden is on 15th Street between R and S Streets NW, directly behind the Scottish Rite Masonic Temple. For more information, check out The Temple Garden website. The rain date is Sunday.

Located on the grounds of the Masonic Temple, the garden is slated to close after this fall’s harvest. See Temple Garden to Close After 2011 Harvest.

    Sounds like a great idea to get to know the garden for those of us not gardening there … But isn’t the garden scheduled to close at the end of this season? Why the open house now?

    Warning for those of us with petss:

    I tried to stop by there this morning while on my weekly Saturday morning walk … As I approached some woman rudely shouted to me ‘YOU CAN’T COME IN HERE WITH THAT!’ The ‘that’ was my dog. No explanation, nothing. Just warm welcomes for some guy named Ron right behind me.

    Ironically, their posters say ‘bring your kids’. I guess they don’t realize that for many of us in Borderstan, our dogs ARE our kids. Either way, I certainly wasn’t made to feel welcome. If the point of this open house was to make friends in the community, they just lost one possible friend.
