Windsor to Host May Treasure Island Garden Workshops


The Town of Windsor will hold free garden-themed workshops and a special Mother’s Day event at the Treasure Island Demonstration Garden.

The garden features hundreds of plants that flourish in Windsor and is open to the public.

Events for the month of May include:

  • Saturday, May 13, 10 a.m. - Noon: Janene Willey will discuss late spring weather gardening concerns, including when to plant tender plants, what to do if it snows, and how to protect your plant investment from Mother Nature’s unpredictable ways.
  • Sunday, May 14, 1:30-3:30 p.m.: Mother’s Day Tour — Enjoy a tour of the garden and its trove of spring blooms. Light refreshments will be served.

  • Wednesday, May 17, 9 a.m. - Noon: Workshop: “Growing Dahlias in Colorado” — Weld County Master Gardener Gina Solanyk will share her wealth of knowledge on growing dahlias in Colorado, something she’s done for many years.

Volunteers maintain the garden on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon, during the growing season. No experience is necessary, however interested volunteers are asked to attend a training session at 9 a.m. Wednesday, May 17, at the Treasure Island Demonstration Garden.

The Treasure Island Demonstration Garden is open for public viewing from sunrise to sunset, and is located adjacent to Laku Lake Road, along the Poudre River Trail, south of Eastman Park. Roadside parking is available via the 7th Street entrance. Most of the garden is accessible with paved surfaces.

The garden is open for private group or club tours and workshops. For more information, call the volunteers at 303-726-7634.
