The HAS is excited to invite you to the most special garden tour that we have offered to date—a tour of OUR gardens in celebration of our 60th Anniversary! Come and join us as we celebrate the history of the HAS and its place in the greater history of Colorado Springs. Learn how our gardens have changed over the years, and what our goals for the gardens are now. Familiarize yourself with the native plants that we have on display, and take home ideas for your own garden beds. As if that wasn’t enough, we will have some lovely music performed by the Colorado Springs Saxophone Quartet, and harpist Marta Taylor, as well as refreshments. Kids also will have some activities, with participation prizes to take home. So come help us celebrate, and bring your family and friends. Our public gardens are for everyone!

A NOTE TO OUR GARDEN VOLUNTEERS:
This is a big event, and we would like to have the gardens looking tip-top. We know that summer is a busy time for traveling and visiting family and friends—but if you could spare some time to help us, we would greatly appreciate it!
To those who are considering volunteering in our gardens, please fill out the volunteer form found at our website (hasgardens.org). We are not requiring masks while working outside in the gardens, but feel free to wear one if you choose. If you are not feeling well, please take the time to care for yourself first, then join us when you have recovered. We promise we won’t run out of chores to do in the garden!
