At this time of year it's hard to believe that Spring is just around the corner. But before you know it, Spring will be here! Now's the time to start planting those inside seeds. Why notgive it a try this year?


We need members to grow plants - both pererinial and annual as well as veggies - for our May Plant Sales. Even if your plants don't turn out as well as you'd like, you'll have learned something about starting plants from seeds. And your fellow garden club members are here to answer questions and provide support. Contact Michele if interested and she will give you a starter kit and some seeds.


But what about sowing seeds outdoors? Depending on the plant, it is about time for some of those to go in the ground as well. As we learned in our Growing Veggies in CO presentation in March, some cold weather plants, like lettuce, can be sown directly on top of the snow for April harvest! Wouldn't that be great? I think I'll give it a try this year to see if that works out for my garden.


I look forward to hearing what you all are planning with your gardens this year!

The Dig and Dream Garden Club has been keeping busy during this trying time by holding both virtual and in-person meetings and doing our workdays in shifts - following proper social distancing guidelines of course!


Although not all members have joined all of our virtual meetings, we have had a quorum at all but one meeting since March 2020! We also have virtual educational programs to include one on planting for humminbirds and another on gardening for butterflies with a virtual garden tour, which was a lot of fun.


We also celebrated our cherished member, Dorothy Muir’s, 100th Birthday this past year with a fun drive by parade!


We have also expanded our website and added the ability for our member to pay their membership dues online.


We have been working hard to find creative ways to keep our members engaged. We look forward to learning tips from the other clubs on how you’ve been doing this as well!

This is our new blog on our new website. We want to welcome you to our Dig and Dream Garden Club website. We are a local garden club in Centennial, Colorado. We are a member of the Colorado Federation of Garden Clubs (CFCG) and the National Garden Clubs (NGC). We have on average between 40-50 members. Our members include both men and women and we have a wide range of ages. We are also planning a junior club for younger members!


We are focused on Gardening Education and Community Service. We have several projects going each year, to include our legacy projects: Maintaining the Ronald McDonald House Gardens and porch planters; the Pickens Technical College Rose Garden; the gardens at Ft. Logan Cemetery; and the Smoky Hill Library Butterfly Garden.


We meet once a month, at noon on the 3rd Monday of the month, at the Smoky Hill Library. We welcome you to come check us out. It is free to attend as a guest your first time. Then you can decide if you'd like to join our merry band of Gardeners.
