As gardeners transplanted from the East, we learned what many others have before and since: It’s different here in the mountains!

The challenges are many: Short growing seasons. Drought. Cool nights. Hail. Deer. Voles. Gophers and ground squirrels. Poor soil. Wind.

With help, we also learned that you can have great gardens in the Rocky Mountain region—you just need to know a little more.

Unable to find a magazine addressing these challenges, we published the first issue of Rocky Mountain Gardening (formerly Zone 4) in Spring 2009. Our mission: To help others be successful high-elevation gardeners, and to connect them with people and places sharing the same interests.

Finally, a gardening and local foods magazine for us!
