The Reston Garden Club has been an active part of the Reston
community, since its organization in 1970. It is celebrating its 40th
birthday this year and is featured in a special article in the 2010 Summer Edition
of the Reston magazine. Click on the sunflower to read the article.
projects of the club are designed to encourage interest in home gardening,
better horticultural practices, flower arranging, civic beautification and the
conservation of native plants and wildlife. Membership is open to all
interested residents of Reston and surrounding communities, whether they
are novices or experts. Please visit our membership page for details on
how to join.
Members enjoy monthly programs with speakers and demonstrations. Meetings are
held on the first Tuesday of the month from September through June at 1:00 pm.
Please see our Calendar page for a complete listing of dates, locations
and programs. In addition, special events such as bus trips to gardens and
shows are planned throughout the year. Our newsletter, "Weeder's Digest",
is published monthly with horticultural information, club news, and opportunities
for community service.
Club contributions to Reston have
included thousands of bulbs, hundreds of trees and other memorial plantings,
nature camp scholarships, “Adopt-A-Highway” maintenance of the Bowman Towne Drive
area, and co-sponsorship of Reston Garden Tours. Fund raising activities
have included an annual Holiday Greens Sale, the sale of gardening items,
and the publication of our wonderful cookbook. In June 2006 we held our second
garden tour. It was a huge success, much enjoyed by everyone, and we were able
to donate $3,500 in proceeds to Nature House.
Reston Garden Club won a Best of Reston 2008 award for its work
in support of the Walker Nature Education Center and civic beautification, including the planting
of hundreds of trees and flowers throughout the community.
This Reston Interfaith and Greater Reston Chamber of
Commerce award honors businesses, organizations and individuals
who have shown a commitment to community service in the local area.
