Xeric GardenXeric Garden Tours

Take a tour through Adams County's Xeric garden and learn about the plants used. Xeriscaping (zer-i-skaping) is a word originally coined by a special task force of the Denver Water Department, Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado, and Colorado State University combining the green word “xeros” meaning dry and landscaping. It is the principle of gardening with less water but does not mean a loss of beauty. Colorado is an excellent location to try out xeriscaping in the garden! The tour is limited to 20 people per session.

     Thursday, Aug. 2, 10 a.m.
