Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration presents its annual juried exhibition highlighting students’ best achievements in a variety of media.

If you would like to meet the artists and enjoy a little food and drink, then please sign up, otherwise attend the exhibition at a time convenient to you.

These works build upon a well-established tradition of portraying plants for scientific documentation and to represent the beauty of the natural world. Invisible Links explores the complex and often hidden interdependent relationships between plants and other organisms. From pollinators to parasites, experience the invisible influence plants wield over the lives of other creatures.

Our Summer Celebration Potluck was held August 6th at the Eagles Nest Club House in Silverthorne.   It was a beautiful evening weatherwise and such a fun time for members and their guests to socialize and enjoy so many scrumptious dishes.  Many thanks to Jan for organizing again this year and to Alton, her husband, for assisting!

2017 Garden Club Event Photos

A Day Trip to Cherokee Ranch & Castle, July 14, 2017 was enjoyed by a group of Summit County Garden Club members led by Liz Wickert.   A beautiful summer day enhanced our view, gourmet sundeck lunch and tour of the castle and grounds.   This is a unique treasure that lends itself to a fun outing within a reasonable drive from Summit County!

We try to educate our members and the community about gardening in Summit County and provide a social setting for informational exchanges to share the beauty of gardening with others.

There's lots going on in our Club and room for many to be involved. It's surprising how much we accomplish in our short Summit summers.
