There are some incredible summer garden workshops being offered by the city’s Department of Parks and Recreation (see a full list here). In addition to the shiitake mushroom session, you’ll find classes on spoon carving, vertical gardening, how to make cider, and growing rice and quinoa in D.C. There are more than 100 free classes to choose from this year (up from 70 last year).
Most classes can fit up to 40 people, but put your name on the waiting list even if a class appears full. There’s a good chance a spot will open up.

I have started canning recently and it is so much fun! The idea of growing shiitake mushrooms in the city sounds positively intriguing! What is being offered in your community to get us back to nature?
DC is very different as a place to live from what the tourists see on a quick visit- While it is great to go to the museums and monuments, there are lots of things to do, like learning to grow your own mushrooms that you might not think of when you think of DC.
If you are relocating to DC or if you just want to make a move from Chevy Chase back into the city then you should give the Lise Howe Group a call at 240-401-5577! There is a lot going on in the city these days! Don't miss out! Work with a Realtor who really knows and loves the city!
