Progressive Garden Brunch with DUG

Our progressive brunch shows off the taste and flavor of locally-grown produce as guests will enjoy Bluestone Lane cold brew coffee, Teatulía teas, Tito’s Vodka premium cocktails, and brunch classics courtesy of Snooze that showcase the power of healthy and sustainable food systems.

The event will begin at Posner Center, and we’ll make our way to a few local DUG gardens*, stopping to get fueled up along the way with coffee, tea, fruit, and pastries. We’ll return back to the Posner Center for a vegetarian sit-down brunch complete with eggs, pancakes, sweet potato hash, Impossible sausage, sauteed veggies, and live music from local folk trio Starling.

*Note: the total distance for the progressive brunch will be less than one mile.

Tickets are $45 individually or buy a table for 4 for $165. Limited quantities available, so don’t wait to grab yours!

Extending the Harvest with Hoop Houses and Cold Frames

Whether it’s spring, fall, or winter it’s always nice to have fresh vegetables to eat! Colorado’s 300 days of sunshine make our area very conducive to year-round gardening. You can start simply by planting earlier in the spring and having protection from our late spring weather fluctuations. In this workshop, learn about extending the growing season by using an easy-to-build cold frame. We’ll provide detailed instructions and demonstrate how to build a cold frame, so that you can build your own and keep your garden growing all year long. Additional info will be shared about hoop tunnels, another simple way to extend the season. Learn about plant selection, timing, and care of the crops under these covers.
