One month from today, one of our region’s best horticulture and gardening events happens. The 2010 Peak to Prairie Landscape Symposium will be held Feb 26 and 27 at the Doubletree – World Arena in Colorado Springs. Its purpose is to inspire “the communities of Southern Colorado to create appealing and enduring landscapes suitable for our soils, climate, and finite water resources.”

This popular symposium always brings together sessions for the beginner-to-advanced gardener or landscaper. And this year’s sessions are no exception. Look for sessions on vegetables, fruit, rainwater harvesting, design, etc. Lunch is included if you register for Friday’s full day program. And the popular book sale will happen both days.
