Join Wild Ones Front Range community in volunteering for several 2022 worthwhile
events, programs, and habitat gardens.
Ekar Farm aims to cultivate healthy communities by growing sustainably produced fruits and vegetables. The farm staff set aside an area to grow native plants as an educational opportunity, and have asked Wild Ones to help design and plant this native plant demonstration garden. It is currently full of weeds, but we are slowly clearing it. We will have signage highlighting the benefits of native plants.
