That is amazing, as a person that works for a non-profit in Denver it is great to hear about the other fantastic non-profits in our great city.  This Colorado Garden Foundation helps students really focus on their dream of attending school.  I remember looking at all of the amazing garden's that are set up with beautiful flowers and plants and seeing that each of the universities in Colorado partakes in those creations. 




Sounds like a great event right?  Jeremy and I have gone a number of times and we love it.  Not only does it give you great inspiration for gardening and home remodeling but it has the fun aspects of shows that we all love.  Yummy food, family activities and booths full of items that will have you preparing for spring and summer.   

Take time with the family or maybe a date day to the Garden and Home Show.  It will help you get into the Spring and Summer mood!  Get those gardening and remodeling plans ready!!  Or, just go and enjoy the time with family and friends!

 What are your plans this weekend?  Hope to see you at the show!

  2. I would love to be there! We don't have many of these shows in the UK and so I'd be over the moon to attend! My boys have their birthdays this weekend so it's all about them!

  4. Wow, the entire area of the convention center is massive! I bet there will be a lot of learning and information sharing in this event. If only I'm near, I will surely go. Landscape garden designing seems a subject of interest to more households.

  6. I've actually heard about this flower show, and I really want to attend this show! I can imagine how beautiful it will be to see all the flowers, plants, and more in person. Always fun to learn about new technologies used in gardening too.
