The Falcon Garden Club was founded in 1999 by Falcon area gardeners. We are learning and trying out gardening techniques in our Colorado xeriscape environment. There is usually a horticulture related presentation at our meetings. If you are anywhere in the Black Forest, Elbert, Peyton or Falcon area please join us the third Saturday each month at the High Prairie Library in Falcon at 10am as we share ideas and knowledge to help make your gardening experience more successful.
The little town of Falcon, Colorado is located 10 miles east of Colorado Springs. It was founded in 1888 and was probably the junction of the Rock Island Railroad and the Denver Texas Ft. Worth Railroad. We are a growing community with some very challenging growing conditions. We are barely a zone 5 and we have wind, rabbits and of course, hail as soon as the Iris bloom.
Our club has several beautiful and informative events throughout the year including our Plant Sale in June, Secret Garden Tour in July and our regular meetings on the third Saturday each month (except June, July & August). For more information on past and current club activities please go to our Events page.
The club is also involved in community projects in the Falcon area. Currently we are working on our ongoing Library Project which involves partnering with the High Prairie Library in landscaping part of their habitat.
