Washington, D.C.: Hi Gurus,
I was wondering if you could tell me anything about community gardens in the Adams Morgan, Woodley Park, or Dupont Circle area. I'd really like to sign up for the spring and summer, but I don't know where to begin. Any info you can give would be great.

The Going Out Gurus: Gardening is all about patience, right? There are about 30 community gardens around the city, and most of them have waiting lists. I waited about two years to get my plot, but I bet if you make friends with some gardeners, they'd be happy to sublet part of a plot to you. At the very least, they'd welcome your weeding assistance. Near you, check the garden at Walter Pierce Park in Adams Morgan (off 16th Street). Call Garden Resources of Washington (GROW) for more options, 202-234-0591. -- Anne
