Gardening Series 2020

Summary - This eight session series of garden topics may be attended as a building series or as stand-alone sessions. Each session will focus on a different topic pertinent to gardening in western Colorado. Geared for the novice gardener to the experienced grower, there will be something for everyone interested in “growing their own” in western Colorado’s climate and soils. Sessions will be informal and will include discussion and teaching as well as class participation, hands on interaction, and question and answer dialogue.

Presenters – Sessions will be led by avid gardeners, Larry Wobeter, Reed Irwin, and Dave Dearstyne . Larry and Reed are both experienced master gardeners. Dave is a soil scientist with over 30 years experience. These presenters bring over 100 years of gardening experience, much of which was acquired on the west slope of Colorado. The three presenters come from across the country, gardening from Florida, to New York, to Kansas, to Idaho. They bring a background of varied techniques and methods on how they grow successful gardens in western Colorado.
