The key for the Gardens is to take our interactions and understandings of plants and use them to break open a world of wonder for the countless people we reach.

Denver Botanic Gardensí mission of connecting people with plants takes many forms. Sometimes the connection is found through something universal like food. Sometimes itís found through something particular like art. Other times itís a connection through the elements that sustain plants Ė water and soil.
