Extending the gardenCommunity OutReach

Growing gardeners is such a passion for us that we turned it into a unique program! 

For more than a decade, we’ve worked with hundreds of organizations, schools, businesses, and non-profits, sharing the value of gardening with people of all ages.

Our OutReach

Our Community OutReach program proudly features our Garden Ambassador, Luan Akin. A fixture on Denver television for thirty years, Luan logged thousands of hours in her airborne office, the helicopter for CBS4 News. During that time, she also trained as a Master Gardener. Luan left Copter4 and an award-winning career in TV news to put her passion for gardening to work as Tagawa’s Garden Ambassador. As a native Coloradan with a down-to-earth approach and an unfailing sense of humor, she understands the challenges of gardening in our climate and strives to help others succeed.

This year, we’re in the process of rebuilding our community programs, focusing on seasonal presentations we can offer your private group right here at the garden center. We have very limited availability for offsite bookings at your location, but we think your group will love gathering in our unique greenhouse environment!
