When we moved back to the Springs, I immediately joined the Horticultural Art Society. I had fond memories of visiting their plant sale each year and taking some healthy and well adapted plants to my Black Forest home. I knew I needed to learn more about gardening in our high altitude steppe climate and it has truly paid off. I have learned so much from the lectures and tours this organization sponsors; I also volunteer once a week in their Demonstration Garden located just west of Colorado College at 222 Mesa Road. You can follow Horticultural Art Society on Facebook to keep up with current events.
