Garbage to GardensMother Nature loves garbage, and uses ours to make new earth. Meet Smithsonian naturalists from the Green Team in the beautiful Haupt Garden of the Castle for a welcome session. Then get the inside scoop on how compost becomes dirt and find out how throwing a “seed bomb” can make a bare patch of ground bloom. Step into our garden and find the perfect way to celebrate our planet.
