Mordecai Children’s Garden at Denver Botanic Gardens aims to connect families to the natural world and engender a lifelong love and appreciation of the botanical world. MCG abandons some of the typical approaches to children’s gardens, resulting in a garden space that is appreciated by visitors of all ages. Michael will share his experience managing this garden including approaches to interpretation, successful plant material, as well as garden projects that weren’t as successful as originally hoped for. 

Michael Guidi is a horticulturist and photographer based in Denver, CO. In 2017, Michael joined the horticulture team at Denver Botanic Gardens, where he manages the Colorado-themed Mordecai Children’s Garden. Rock gardening and native plants are his main areas of horticultural practice, but he is broadly interested in alpine and arid land flora and ecology. He is involved in a number of active research projects aimed at better understanding the plants and ecology of the Rocky Mountain region. Michael holds a B.S. in biology with plant physiology and ecology specialization. He currently sits on the board of directors of the North American Rock Garden Society.
