Basics of Colorado Gardening

Sustainability Skills Workshop: 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 along with an opportunity to plant and take home a transplant pot of seeds.

COST: $15 for CU Boulder students. Enrollment is limited.

NOTE: Priority is given to CU Boulder students. Faculty, staff and alumni are admitted on a space available basis for $50. Please contact us if you are interested.

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