Denver Botanic Gardens’ Director of Outreach Panayoti Kelaidis, Associate Director of Horticulture and Curator of Steppe Collections Mike Bone and videographer Scott Dressel-Martin have traveled to Mongolia to experience life on the steppe. These travels as part of Denver Botanic Gardens’ Center for Global Initiatives were meant to guide and influence our Central Asian steppe collections and displays, but inspired so much more.

The endless thoughts, actions and processes that define the life of a garden often begin with a singular, passionate vision—but sometimes they do not. Although the Steppe Garden opened to the public in 2016, it was nowhere near completed and had already been decades in the making. Join the Steppe Garden’s major dreamers and influencers as they walk through the garden pondering its history, exploring its design, revealing hidden gems and discussing its dramatic changes over the past four seasons.
