I regularly go to Black Hill park with friends and yet never posted about it, so it is more than about time to do it! My dad travelled to see me and we had been doing whatever outings we could find close enough to my home on weekdays (before a much bigger trip! Suspense…). We went to Black Hill as it is only about 20 minutes away from Gaithersburg.

We discovered the community garden and it’s actually quite amazing! You can cut herbs or flowers using scissors that are provided. They encourage people to also water the plants using rain water from small cisterns. Even their shed features a green roof. And it smells good too! I’ll be back…
