There is much talk about climate change,
I feel it in the temperature's range,
No need for science to tell me this,
My animal instinct feels amiss.

When one has lived as long as I,
We think "good old days", with a sigh.
As we lose the things we have known,
We are reaping what has been sown.

Action is needed, most understand,
Efforts are made, some things get banned.
What will we leave for those yet to come?
If we don't act now, will they succumb?

The Littleton Garden Gang, as distinct from the older and revered Littleton Garden Club, started when Betty HARRIS began teaching classes on how to grow more food in Colorado with less water. Focus is also on soil, composting, native plants, and pollinators.

These classes came about because Betty received a grant from the City of Littleton, a part of Arapahoe County, for part of the tuition for a nine-day class at the Woodbine Ecology Center. As a condition of this grant, Betty was requested to disseminate what information she had learned at the Woodbine facility.

Betty includes in her classes such things as how to make soil (which is biology) out of our Colorado clay and dirt (which is chemistry).

    Littleton Garden Gang has secured funding from the city for ten trees for Littleton residents.
    Original plans were to have the Girl Scouts help in the planting.
    However, with the pandemic COVID-19 one LGG volunteer will pick
    up trees and deliver to the homeowners who will have to plant the tree themselves.
    All the trees have already been ordered; we are not accepting new applications.
