“Roots and Fruits” a Tu B’Shvat Experience

Fruit treeAspen, apple, bristlecone pine? What’s your favorite Colorado tree?

Dates, honey, pomegranates? What’s your favorite of the “seven species”?

Lychee, dragon fruit, horned melon? Which is a fruit you’ve never had and are brave enough to try?

Apples, avocados, peaches… which are in the Dirty Dozen and which are in the Clean Fifteen?

Come have a great time at Boulder’s dynamic Tu B’Shvat experience, answer the above questions, and celebrate the new year of the trees. We’ll get active and hands-on while learning how to keep trees, ourselves , and our planet healthy–from the roots to the fruits!

There will be separate, age-appropriate programming for kids under 13 (kids under 5 need at least one parent/guardian present). The main program will be loved by all ages 13 – 103.
