Guest: Jim Fricke Executive Director The Colorado Garden Foundation was formed in 1958, the same year as the Botanic Gardens.  The Colorado Garden Foundation was originally formed to help raise money for the Botanic Gardens and now they also give out grants and scholarships.  They have give away over $13 million dollars in grants and scholarships over the years.  The Colorado Garden and Home Show will start on 2/24 and will run until 3/3There will be eight gardens that will have over 8,000 flowers in bloom.  After the show, the flowers that were used in the display gardens are donated to nursing homes around the city.  On 2/28 they change out some of the flowers and if you go down right outside the show entrance, you can buy the plants for $2.00.
