Ever been to a certified organic farm? This is your chance to do so and see one of the earliest commercial certified organic greenhouse operations in this part of the country (certified in 1996). Join your fellow members and explore Desert Canyon Farm where they grow over 1800 varieties of potted plants for independent garden centers and nurseries in Colorado and northern New Mexico. You'll learn how they custom grow perennial seeds for Jelitto Perennial Seed Company, including many Plant Select varieties. Plus you can see their heirloom fruit tree orchard and lots of different gardens.

But there's more! - the farm is registered as a certified wildlife habitat, a Xerces pollinator habitat, part of the Colorado Division of Wildlife's Birding Trail and a United Plant Savers Native Medicinal Plant Sanctuary.- wow what a place! In addition to all of these wonderful features, you'll enjoy the gracious hospitality of the owners, Tammi and Chris, as you relax and share memorable fellowship with your CNGA friends. 

The BBQ is free to attend, but we do ask that you register. Sign up here.
