Class at the Denver Botanic Gardens: Growing Food at High Altitudes (Littleton, CO)
Yes, you can grow food in the mountains despite wind, hail, deer, ground animals, bears and extreme temperature fluctuations. Learn from seasoned experts who have been growing organic food at 8,120 feet since 1992. This course is designed to help all Colorado gardeners overcome growing at any altitude in the Intermountain West. Learn about the many great foods that thrive in the mountain climate. Nurture and protect your garden with wind-proof season extenders, hail guards, raised bed preparation, bio-intensive growing, bear-less compost, crop rotation, companion planting, succession planting, vegetables for the shade, mulching, seed starting, seed saving and more. Can’t you just taste those fresh, mountain-grown succulent greens, beans, squash and yes, even tomatoes, sweet corn and pumpkins? Held at the Denver Botanic Gardens.
