Water-Smart Garden

Rocky Mountain Gardening Short Course Certificate

Denver Botanic Gardens is proud to offer a hybrid learning experience for those looking to grow in the Front Range. Regardless of your location, transportation or time constraints, we can prepare you for your best growing season yet. Join us for a better understanding of Colorado ecology and how to have a successful garden with stunning native plants despite Colorado's short growing season and extreme weather.

Three sessions are conducted live, giving participants the option to attend these sessions virtually or in person at Denver Botanic Gardens in the Freyer – Newman Center. In between each live session, students watch five self-study videos taught by our instructors. Instructors for this program include Denver Botanic Gardens' staff members, authorities in the Green Industry and other regional experts in horticulture and natural sciences. Each in-person class begins with a short question and answer period that is open to online and live participants.
