Reston Town Center presented HGRTC, a home and garden marketplace in the Pavilion on Sunday, May 5. Throughout the event, visitors enjoyed guest speakers, DJ music, a variety of vendors with décor, plants and more for sale, plus educational groups with information about keeping things natural and beautiful in the garden. On stage, gardening expert Mike McGrath, broadcaster of WTOP radio’s Garden Spot, presented two 1-hour shows including time for Q&A and book signings, and Mina Fies talked about the Renovate Happy experience.
Despite a chilly day full of rain, hardy folks came out to enjoy Mike McGrath’s fun and informative talks, receive tips from non-profit organizations and vendors. About 60 people got tickets to see a free showing of the film “Hometown Habitat” at Bow Tie Cinemas.
HGRTC plant sales benefited The Reston Chorale, thanks to support from Reston Farm Market, the retail center on Baron Cameron Avenue in Reston established in 1976.
