Three Girls, Three Gardens, Thirty Days

One hot summer day I went to visit my former client’s organic garden and she said to me, “One day I want to eat just from my garden. I wonder if I could do it for a month?” I quickly responded that I loved the idea and wanted to try it. Our friend, who is an organic urban grower, wanted to take this challenge as well. The three of us planned to live off of our gardens from September 1-30.

Just when you see the Gardens is busy, busy, busy with shoppers and sellers, it takes a matter of a few steps to disappear away from the crowds. At Spring Plant Sale, I certainly drooled my share over the water-smart plants and flirted with other blooms in the diversity of sections. But I wound my way back towards the front by stepping off the wide, busy pathways and meandering through the Woodland Mosaic.

The Emerald Ash Borer has been in the news a lot recently, but it is only one of a swarm of exotic threats that menace the natural environment of the United States. Denver Botanic Gardens is a partner in the Sentinel Plant Network, a joint effort of the National Plant Diagnostic Network (NPDN) and the American Public Gardens Association (APGA) that is funded by the USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.
