Don’t miss this opportunity to view sustainable gardening practices that provide beauty and habitat for life forms large and small.” Coreen Toll, avid gardener, Manitou Springs City Council
“Participating in the 2015 Friends of Extension Garden Tour was an outstanding experience. It was a great motivator to get my garden in shape; an unforgettable opportunity to include my grandchildren in the process; and a wonderful way to meet others who care about the experience of stewarding a garden. On the tour days, the guests were courteous. Many were quite informed about gardening and shared fascinating tidbits and insights about my plants and trees. Overall, it was a most enjoyable, gentle, and neighborly experience.” -Martin Nusbaum, homeowner
