Rocky Mountain Gardening Elective
This is a course for the beginner or for newcomers to the Front Range Gardening Community. We will hit all the basics of what you really need to know to adjust your gardening skills to our climate or to begin your gardening success here on the Colorado Front Range.
If you have never gardened here before or are looking for more success, this is the class for you!
Learn the basics of gardening in our finicky climate and the skills necessary to become an enthusiastic gardener. Annuals, perennials and vegetables will be discussed, along with trees and shrubs for our climate, elevation and varying soils.
We will discuss plant selection, planting and troubleshooting. Leave with the knowledge and resources you need to plant the garden you have always wanted.
Subsequent weeks will focus on the elements, water needs, fertilizers and organic gardening.
Please bring a glass jar of soil to class. (Must be see through glass jar to study layers of your own backyard native soil)
