Mission & Values

Our Mission

The mission of Denver Botanic Gardens is to connect people with plants, especially plants from the Rocky Mountain region and similar regions around the world, providing delight and enlightenment to everyone.

In support of the Gardens’ institutional mission of connecting people with plants, the purpose of Chatfield Farms is to inspire the public to be good stewards of the environment by connecting people to our past, present and future relationships with plants of the Rocky Mountain region.

Our Core Values

Our four core values — transformation, relevance, diversity and sustainability — spell out the Gardens' intentions in the years ahead. These core values are cohesive and serve as a map to chart our course. With the support of friends, we set out to ensure Denver Botanic Gardens will forever flourish.
