Members wishing to carpool should meet at the parking lot in front of Alco at 9:15 a.m. on May 21. The farms are about 22 miles west of Pagosa Springs on U.S. 160. Turn left into driveway off U.S. 160. Wear comfortable walking shoes and sun protection for the tour.

Mountain High Gardeners meet the third Wednesday of the month (except for the months of January and December) at 10 a.m. at the county Extension building, unless otherwise noted. Its goals are to promote the enjoyment of gardening and to promote fellowship among fellow gardeners.
