Kitchen Guild and Interpretive Gardens

Interpretive Gardens

History lives on the gardener's photo blog!
Dedicated to long-time volunteer and Riverdale Park resident Betty Gossett, the kitchen garden and orchard feature a variety of fruits and vegetables that are representative of the food needed to support the early 19th-century Riversdale community. The gardens are maintained by a corps of volunteers who work in conjunction with Riversdale’s professional gardener. Click here for information about volunteering in the garden.
