Rock Bottom Ranch Children's Garden

Help create a new Children's Garden at Rock Bottom Ranch for kids and families to get their hands dirty while learning about healthy food systems and connecting to nature!
A new Children's Garden at Rock Bottom Ranch will be a place for children and families to explore the origins of food, learn science, and inspire a lifelong connection with nature through hands­-on experiences and play. 
A garden will allow kids to use their imagination and sense of wonder to create their own connections with plants, water, science, and healthy food. Take this opportunity to make a positive and meaningful ecological, educational, health, and social benefit in the Roaring Fork Valley.
