Pulling for Colorado this Saturday – Help us battle noxious weeds

Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield

The health and diversity of native plant populations impact our food, water and wellbeing. Healthy ecosystems provide the fundamental basis for all life on earth; this includes forming soil and cycling nutrients. Plants are the critical base of food chains in most ecosystems and native plants most efficiently support other native plant and animal species.


Minding Your Vegetable Garden

Vegetable Gardening

The beginning of each spring allows vegetable gardeners the opportunity to plan and plant a brand new garden. The most time-consuming part of putting in the vegetable garden is over by early June. You purchased vegetable transplants at the garden center or grew your own starts near a sunny window. Bed preparation is completed and the plants and seeds are officially in the ground.


Down Below: High Altitude Garden Tour

Parmenter land

A good day on the mountain is a day you don’t have to go to “down below”. “Down below” in Alaska refers to the lower 48.  “Down below” in Colorado means anywhere off the mountain – like the town where the grocery store is. After we’ve saved up errands and we are completely out of toilet paper, someone negotiates being the one to go. This is when the one who gets to stay home starts adding things to the list.  This can be dangerous.
