Dig and Dream Garden Club

The Dig and Dream Garden Club meets in Aurora, Colorado. Our mission is to encourage an interest in and enjoyment of the science and art of horticulture.

Some of our community outreach projects are- Maintaining the Rose Garden at Pickens Tech, the Welcome Garden at Ronald McDonald House, Fort Logan Cemetery and Centennial House.

The ongoing projects we have are to provide a Pumpkin Patch and raised beds for students to take care of at Excelsior Youth Center and participating in the Colorado Garden & Home Show.

Sounds like a fun group! And they won an award this year from the Federation for their contribution to the Penny Pines Program!
