Plant Pandemonium at the Botanic Gardens

Taco John’s is generously sponsoring the 8th Annual Plant Pandemonium at the Paul Smith Children’s Village at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens. The community is invited to help them plant the landscape for the Village and Gardens. All plants are provided. There will be several precautions enforced to ensure the safety of all volunteer planters. Volunteers MUST provide their own hand trowels for planting. The Botanic Gardens will NOT be sharing tools. Planting beds and containers will flagged with six foot spacing between family groups and individuals. The Paul Smith Children’s Village will not be open for free play during Plant Pandemonium programs. Restrooms and drinking fountains will be unavailable. Due to COVID-19, and limits on social gatherings, the volunteer workforce will be reduced significantly. Currently, they will be able to host 25 volunteers at one time. Individual and family groups are welcome. No pre-registration is required, but volunteers will not be allowed to enter the Children’s Village if they have reached capacity. Dates and times: Saturday, May 23, from 1:00pm-4:00pm - Container Chaos, help plant planters and containers for the Paul Smith Children’s Village and the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens; May 26, 28, 30 and June 2, 4, from 1:00pm-4:00pm - Plant Pandemonium, help plant areas within the Paul Smith Children’s Village; June 6, from 10:00am-4:00pm - Help plant areas within the Paul Smith Children’s Village, and the Taco John’s Taco Truck will be onsite for hungry volunteers.
