Apres at the Gardens: An Evening of Cowboy Poetry

Peggy Godfrey, an acclaimed poet and rancher, will share an evening of colorful cowboy poetry. A resident of the magical San Luis Valley of Colorado, Godfrey will also answer questions about ranching in the shadow of the Sangre de Cristo mountains.


Peggy Godfrey has been ranching in the high desert next to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado for decades. In this country, “cowboy” is a verb. Since 1991 she has been performing for a wide variety of audiences, composting disasters into poems and stories is her version of value-added agriculture.

Location: Vail Public Library, 292 W. Meadow Drive.

Please note: Our evening speaker series will be held at the Vail Public Library this summer because our exhibit Exposed: the Secret Life of Roots is so big there’s no more room in the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens Education Center. Be sure to come check it out -there are roots hanging from the ceiling!

Drinks and light appetizers provided
