The Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership (GGP) treasures its educational partners, like the Weminuche Audubon volunteers who maintain the Native Plants Garden and give tours of Pagosa’s Riverwalk wetlands. Supporting the GGP through Breakfast with Balloons is a good way for community members to continue the GGP’s ongoing environmental education efforts.

The Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership (GGP) will host Breakfast with Balloons this Saturday morning, Sept. 17, from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.

Why the early morning hours? Because that’s when the hot air balloons lift off all at once, marking another ColorFest in Pagosa Springs. Breakfast with Balloons guests enjoy a delicious breakfast with savory and sweet cuisine, the GGP’s choke cherry mimosas and other beverages, fabulous live music and a private seat to view the balloons rising right above their heads.

All proceeds help the nonprofit GGP, the volunteer-driven organization that manages three geothermal greenhouses in Centennial Park. The GGP is a 501(c)(3) charitable corporation of good standing in the state of Colorado. The vitality of downtown Pagosa Springs remains a key goal of GGP civic entrepreneurs as they demonstrate direct use of geothermal energy for community benefit.
