Love is in the air this weekend as Valentines Day is right around the corner! It’s certainly a great time for dates with a partner &/or family members. We’re beginning to see some Spring events happening with workshops that teach about planting.  Many of this weekend’s events are aimed at teaching us a fun craft and I encourage you to participate in one!  It’s a GREAT opportunity to meet new friends and neighbors in your NOVA community!
