Conservation Gardens Fair 

No event planned for 2023 

Started in 2011, the annual Conservation Gardens Fair allows the public to tour Northern Water’s award-winning gardens while simultaneously attending a free family-friendly event. Our Berthoud campus includes a 2.5-acre conservation garden where staff conducts plant, turf and irrigation studies, as well as educates the public about best practices for water efficient landscaping. This annual event includes how-to seminars, irrigation demonstrations, expert landscaping advice and fun activities designed just for kids. The gardens feature more than 700 Colorado-friendly perennials, turf and shrubs that provide beautiful, striking and climate-appropriate landscaping ideas for your home or business.  

As our Conservation Gardens and Water Efficiency program have gained visibility, this event grows in popularity every year. Not only can the public connect with industry professionals for information and advice, but our partners find this event quite valuable for sharing their program details.
