Denver Botanical Gardens will be hosting the first ever Botanical Garden Expo and Expo 2019, on Saturday, May 1, 2019, at the Denver Botanic Garden.
The event, which runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., will be free and open to the public.
There will be live music, vendors, food, and more, including the first-ever exhibit dedicated to botanical gardeners.
Attendees will also get to take part in live-tweeting sessions, meet new gardeners and planters, and have a chance to meet a few of the botanical artists in attendance.
Attendee tips from our botanist in attendance: “This event will be a great way to get to know the gardeners you might not otherwise meet,” said Chris Ruhlman, Denver Botanist.
“They are some of the best gardeners in the world.
We want to get them to feel comfortable and to be part of something meaningful.”
Ruhlsman said that he and his wife, Kim, will be attending the Expo as guests of the Botanical Gardener Club of America, an organization of local gardeners that supports their work.
Kim Ruhlan, who works in the field, said that they are excited to share their experiences with other gardeners as they grow.
“I want to share what we are doing with the people I love,” Ruhlang said.
“We want to show them that we are willing to work together to share our knowledge.
We are excited for this year’s Expo to help us build relationships and share information about how the art of gardeners can improve the lives of the city’s residents.”
This year’s Botanical Expo will also feature live entertainment, including live performances from local and national artists, as well as the first live performance of the year by a solo artist.
Botanical gardens are located throughout the Denver metropolitan area.
The city of Denver has a population of more than 25 million.
This year, Denver will be the only city in the United States with two botanical parks, The Denver Botany Garden and the Denver Art Garden.
“The Botanical Arts Festival is our way of acknowledging that we live in a unique and exciting place where botany is part of the fabric of everyday life,” said Julie Hinton, Denver City of Denver.
“It’s important that we celebrate the history of botany, the artistry and diversity of this fascinating world, and celebrate our city as a city that celebrates life and the beauty of its citizens.”
