Fall Gardening: The ‘Other’ Season

Fall is actually the most important season for gardeners. It’s a time for focusing on reviewing our successes and challenges, revising garden plans, preparing the soil for the following season and even sowing seeds for early spring crops. Many of the same early spring crop choices can be successfully replanted to reap a fall harvest. This workshop will discuss specific techniques for fall planting, soil improvement (including cover crops), weed control, and pest management that can lead to a deeply rooted garden in the springtime. A portion of the class time will be spent in DUG’s ‘Horsebarn’ garden, directly viewing the ‘maturing’ garden, and identifying factors that lead to a bountiful season.

This workshop will take place at DUG Headquarters, located at 1031 33rd Street, slightly north of downtown Denver, on Saturday, August 25th, at 10:00am.

The cost of this workshop is $25. Scholarships are available! For more information, please contact Brittany Pimentel, Horticulture Program Coordinator, here.
