President’s Welcome

Greetings Fellow Gardeners and Friends,

I am both proud and humbled to be the President of the Colorado Federation of Garden Clubs.  You represent the best of the best.  Your dedication to civic causes, environmental issues, educational endeavors and the promotion of gardening in general is most impressive.  By working together, we can accomplish so much more than working in isolation.  There is strength in numbers.  By being united, we truly are better together.

We can also work together to aid in the habitat loss affecting the monarch butterfly.  The adult female monarch seeks nourishment from the flowering perennials we all grow in our gardens.  But the adult female will only lay her eggs on milkweed.  No milkweed, no more monarchs.  By working together, we can raise awareness in Colorado about this important issue.
