Basics of Colorado Gardening

In this Sustainability Skills workshop with ENVS Permaculture instructor Kelly Simmons, you will learn the basics of gardening in the high desert Colorado foothills - from site preparation and building soil to growing your favorite veggies including their characteristics, what they need, when to plant them, when to harvest them and how to build great soil for them to thrive in. We will cover seeds and transplants, watering and plant care for both container gardening and garden plots. And we will gain some hands-on experience with seeds, soil and planting too, so that you feel ready to grow your own this Spring! Participants will receive hand outs on building soil and a Boulder Planting Guide.

This workshop is open to enrolled CU Boulder students only. Enrollment is limited.

Please arrive on time so we can get started and underway promptly.
