In the past 25 years, organizations throughout Colorado have received grants totaling over $5.5 million from Colorado Garden Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to furthering the horticultural industry. Colorado Garden Foundation also produces the Colorado Garden & Home Show, the state’s oldest and most prestigious garden and home show which attracts more than 60,000 visitors annually.

Each year, money raised from the Show supports horticultural and related activities throughout Colorado. The Grant program funds tree and plant material purchases, school landscape improvements, community gardens, and educational and research programs with organizations throughout Colorado. Colorado Garden Foundation also supports college students with scholarships who are studying floriculture, horticultural science and business, nursery management, turf grass management, landscape design or landscape management. These students also plan to continue working in the field in Colorado upon graduation.
