Enchanted Gardens Tour and Free Tickets!

Saturday, June 12th from 9am-4pm

The Conflict Center

4140 Tejon St, Denver, Colorado


This is one of my favorite garden tours in the Denver area because it showcases fun, funky, intriguing, and very personal landscapes. Most of the featured gardens are the result of the homeowners' own creativity and passion for gardening. There are no cookie-cutter, production style landscapes here, no sir!


From the tour sponsor:

This year’s tour is the 10th Anniversary event and will feature over 20 spectacular NW Denver gardens. Some special features include low-water gardens, kid-friendly gardens, and “urban farms.” Bring your bike and participate in a bike tour of selected gardens, starting at 10am. If you do not have a bike, there will be some available to borrow at The Conflict Center – these will be loaned on a first come, first served basis. Also check out the huge silent auction, which will take place during the event, at The Conflict Center. All proceeds benefit The Conflict Center’s school programs, which strive to reduce violence in schools by teaching strategies to effectively manage conflict and anger. Tickets are $15.00 for adults, children under 12 are free.

After Party from 4-7pm with food, drinks, and entertainment at 23rd Ave Sculpture Studio (free with garden tour ticket!)

Even though I can't make it, perhaps I can win them for my Denver friends. It sound like it will be a fun time.

Would love to take my sister on this tour, she'll be visiting from Atlanta. Looks like fun!

Les and Angie, you are both in the running for the free tickets! Thanks for participating...

This is something I always plan on going to and then miss. Will do my best to make it out this year, heck the party is right down the street from us!

Jocelyn H. Chilvers said...

Well, Sarah, a free pair of tickets might make that more "doable" this year, eh? good luck!

I would love to do this tour since the Eccentric Garden tour in Boulder seems to be gone.

Happy to add your name to the hat, Valerie! Thanks for participating.

I've never heard of this wonderful sounding tour; it sounds great. And I too am sorry about the Eclectic Gardens tour disappearing. Maybe it's a biennial...
Thanks for putting this up Jocelyn!
