Summer is right around the corner and your green thumb is calling. Instead of spending money on a basil plant that you will attempt to keep alive for more than one week (a serious accomplishment for those of us with studios and limited access to sunlight), why not spend your time in a garden that reaps more than a mere serving of pesto?

The Children’s Hospital Clinic at 14th Street and Florida Avenue NW is looking for volunteers to tend to its recently planted organic garden at 11th and Florida NW. Volunteers are expected to help with upkeep on an every-other-day basis for one week at a time. In return, volunteers are sent home with part of the season’s harvest.

Those interested in volunteering should email Lindsay Ehlers at lbehlers[AT] or call the clinic at (202) 476-5500.
