Riley-Chetwynd: DBG extendS beyond plants to art and entertainment
The Colorado Statesman
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Cliché, perhaps… but true. Colorado has seen a lot of change since its establishment as a state, but certain elements remain constant: a pioneering spirit, a connection to the land and a tendency to be at the center of things (and not just geographically, lest we be subjected to any fly-over-state jabs).
RILEY-CHETWYND: WATER MANAGEMENT BEGINS AT LOCAL LEVEL
With outdoor water use accounting for more than half of Denver’s water consumption, water-efficient gardening can help conserve this precious resource. Denver Botanic Gardens identified sustainability as a core value with this in mind — educating our community on how to design and maintain a beautiful garden with plants that are appropriate for a semi-arid climate. From the way we irrigate to the plants we feature in our gardens, we try to set an example of good water management.
