Alpine Paradise

Join us (and Cactus and Succulent Society) at the garden of Christine Vargas in Central Alpine. Christine had the house built in 1997 while teaching - the entire one acre was all clay soil and rocks plus monster mustard plants.  Since then she has created her own little paradise - using her amateur gardening skills to create what works in an extremely cold (snow 3 times) and extremely hot environment.  There are many varieties of fruit trees, succulents galore, and chickens to keep the bugs out. 

Her love of gardening is obvious - lots of clutter and dust in the house since she mostly is outside in the garden.   Since she was a biology teacher it is her own little science experiment!

Christine will have plants for sale and refreshments.

Please Note:
