Reston Garden Club scrapbook C0166
Published by George Mason University Libraries
The Reston Garden Club was founded in 1970. The club's goal is to promote home gardening, flower arranging, community beautifications and other horticultural activities in Reston. The club meets on the first Tuesday of the month between the months of September and June, taking the summer off. The club is also involved in many community programs including "Adopt-A-Highway" and co-sponsoring the Reston Garden Tours as well as fundraising projects in Reston.
The scrapbooks document the club's activities and each scrapbook covers one year beginning with the founding of the Garden Club in 1970. Also in the collection is the Garden Club's application to the National Capital Area Federation of Garden Clubs in 1980. The collection is dated from 1970 to 2009 and is contained in 17 boxes.

Donated by the Reston Garden Club in 1993 with subsequent donations.
The Reston Garden Club scrapbook collection was originally attached to the larger Planned Community Archives collection currently in the Special Collections and Archives. In 2009 the documents were removed and organized into a separate collection still housed in the Special Collections and Archives at George Mason University Libraries. The old box and folder numbers are also included as part of the new arrangement.
