This two-day event focuses on creating and maintaining unique and sustainable landscapes in our semi-arid climate. Regional experts will present a variety of topics, including the latest in water-wise landscape design, plant selection, installation and maintenance.
New Botanical Art Show- FREE to Registrants
Members of The Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists will be providing botanical illustrations of native garden plants used by Colorado gardeners and landscape designers in our semi-arid climate. The emphasis of the exhibit will be cultivars of wild plants such as blanket flower, delphinium, sunflower, lupines roses, cacti, columbines, lilies and bee-balm.
Each year, the Outdoor Spaces VT delivers a cutting-edge two-day conference to the people of the Pikes Peak Region and southern Colorado. Our goal is to provide the latest information on sustainable landscape and water conservation practices to professionals and homeowners, in order to cultivate a community-wide landscape ethic that reflects opportunities and limitations of the western ecosystem in which we live. Through this effort, we hope to inspire more beautiful, functional, and resilient water-wise western landscapes.
The Event’s Mission: To provide an educational forum inspiring the communities of southern Colorado to create appealing and enduring landscapes suitable for our soils, climate, and finite water resources.
