Frank's Garden is an 8-acre garden dedicated to growing vegetables to be donated to our community and our amazing employees. In 1967, Frank Tagawa started our company by growing vegetables. As the company transitioned to flowers and other plants, we stopped farming in the late 1970s. But Frank kept growing vegetables to donate to family, friends and his employees. In Frank's giving spirit, we renew our commitment to supporting our community.
Keep up with the activity at Frank's Garden!
Colorado State University Grow & Give
Tagawa Greenhouse has partnered with CSU's Grow & Give Program which addresses food insecurity in Colorado by connecting backyard and community gardens to food donation sites across the state. Frank's Garden will help meet this need.
Colorado State University Flower Trial Garden
The outdoor display and test areas at the Colorado State University Annual Flower Trial Garden were established to allow students, researchers, industry representatives, homeowners and extension personnel to learn, teach and evaluate through horticultural research and demonstration projects conducted in the unique environmental conditions of the Rocky Mountain/High Plains region.
Tagawa Greenhouse is a proud contributor to the CSU Annual Flower Trial Garden Advisory Committee and work closely with the event to support their mission to provide education, research and outreach to students, community members, industry professions and anyone else with a desire to learn.
In addition to industry flower evaluation day, Tagawa Greenhouse is a proud supporter of the CSU Annual Trial Garden Consumer Day. Held each summer at the gardens, it's an opportunity for consumers across the state of Colorado to visit the gardens, vote for their favorite flowers, and engage in fun, family-friendly activities with Tagawa Greenhouse, our InColor Retail-Ready team and the CSU Flower Trial Gardens students and staff.
Weld Central High School
Each year, PowerStarts by Tagawa donates young plants to the Weld Central High School FFA Program in Keenesburg, Colorado for the students to grow in the high school's greenhouse. The plants are then sold at the school's annual FFA Flower Sale to benefit FFA scholarships and programs. This year's event was held at the First Baptist Church in Hudson, Colorado on May 6th and 13th, 2023.
