The Brady Bunch, HGTV’s Barry Williams headlines this weekend’s Capital Remodel & Garden Show

Capital Remodel + Garden Show

Barry Williams, former teen star of The Brady Bunch and of HGTV’s A Very Brady Renovation, is heading this weekend’s Capital Remodel + Garden Show at the Dulles Expo Center.

Author and gardener Joel Karsten, a leading voice of the straw bale gardening concept, will also be at the event. Straw bale gardening, according to Karsten, is simply a different type of container gardening with the container as the straw bale itself held together with two or three strings. Once the straw inside the bale begins to decay the straw becomes conditioned compost that creates the plant rooting environment.

More than 200 companies will be on hand to showcase the latest products and services in home remodeling, renovation, home décor, landscape, and garden design.  An ongoing schedule of home remodeling and landscape experts conducting seminars will be carried out throughout the three-day show, which runs from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25, and Saturday, Feb. 26. and from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 27.
