There's Still Time!

If you're in the last minute or don't know what perfect gift to give the gardener in your life camp, fret no more. May I suggest the gift of education. 
Denver and the Front Range is very fortunate in having many free or low cost outlets for garden classes and seminars. Below is a list with links that I've put together for ones that I know of as of right now - I'll refresh the list (and re-post) the first of the New Year. Don't forget botanic garden memberships or plant societies, consider giving them a year's membership to meet other gardeners. Obviously if you don't reside in this area, check out what's offered in your neck of the woods.
