The Friends of Rose Park had a “Julia & Julia” moment, as its fundraiser was held Nov. 4 at the one-time home of America’s cooking teacher and TV personality Julia Child at 2706 Olive Street NW. Rose Park members and supporters welcomed Julia Washburn of the National Park Service, whose parkland borders the D.C. park. NPS is helping with the planned shade garden next to the completely renovated Olive Street house, which, by the way, is for sale for $3.5 million.
