WHAT A YEAR IT'S BEEN!
SEASON to remember
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March of 2020, no one knew what to expect or what our “new normal” would look like. But, just like Mother Nature, we at The Gardens are resilient.
So we adapted, reimagined and pivoted to continue to provide the experience we all value so much.
Thanks to the support of our community we were able to keep our highly-skilled staff intact and our doors open safely since June.
We worked to provide restoration and healing for our visitors, a place for socially-distanced connection for volunteers and event goers and a trusted source for high-quality and engaging education programming. Here are just a few highlights of what we accomplished.
The Gardens on Spring Creek provides critical services to our community, especially during this challenging time. Our beautiful gardens have remained a safe space for socially-distanced healing and respite and to connect to people and nature. Our events and programming provide a sense of normalcy, we continue to grow produce in support of our neighbors served by the Food Bank for Larimer County, and we remain a trusted source for high-quality and engaging youth programming.
Still, things are not business as usual. Our reimagined formats take additional staffing resources. Many of our funding resources were eliminated while others were dramatically reduced. Yet, despite everything, the Gardens on Spring Creek continues to be a place to learn, celebrate, heal and grow.
Help us continue to provide this experience in the year ahead. We know that times are hard for everyone. If you are able to make a donation to The Gardens, at any level, we would be deeply grateful.
