Let’s Get Growing to heal our planet and save our pollinators
Join your friends and neighbors to increase the number of native plants in our community.
If you’re new to native plant gardening, you don’t need to wait to install a pollinator garden - just add a few native plants to your yard now to gain experience and get your feet wet! A small patch provides lots of forage for pollinators – remember to “Plant in threes for native bees!”
Dig a Spot for Colorado Native Plants!
Colorado native plants are beautiful, perfectly adapted to our climate and soils, save water, and best of all, provide nectar, pollen and seeds for our native pollinators and birds.

Every little bit of native plant habitat counts and it all adds up to big change. So join the movement and visit participating retailers and organizations who are participating in Get Growing.
