Denver, CO. – Denver Botanic Gardens partnered with Cool Planet, an agricultural technology company that develops soil health products.
Denver Botanic Gardens will conduct trials of Cool Planet’s soil enhancement product, Cool Terra, in a variety of gardens at the York Street location.
The goal is to evaluate the degree to which Cool Terra can help the gardens reduce their overall water use.
“This year, we are testing Cool Terra in various types of gardens such as annuals in sun and shade, annuals in containers, vegetables, perennials in challenging locations and new plantings,” said Sarada Krishnan, director of horticulture at Denver Botanic Gardens.
“Cool Planet is proud to be partnering with Denver Botanic Gardens to help advance their research and understanding of soil health technologies and water-efficient gardening,” said Jim Loar, CEO of Cool Planet.
Denver Botanic Gardens has long been committed to advancing water-efficient gardening and agricultural principals.
The Cool Terra trials will be displayed at Denver Botanic Gardens’ main campus, located at 1007 York St. The Gardens are open daily, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the summer and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the late fall and winter.
