Colorado Gardening: Challenge to Newcomers

Colorado Garden
Newcomers to Colorado often have trouble getting plants to survive, let alone thrive. More often than not, they previously gardened where "you stick a plant in the ground and it grows." Typically, those from northern states such as Minnesota or Michigan are puzzled why certain trees that did well for them there do poorly in Colorado.

Winter cold is not the only factor that determines plant survival. Low humidity, drying winds and physical properties of the soil also influence how well plants perform here.

April Board Elections

Berthoud Local is an all volunteer run organization, including our Board of Directors.  Elections are going to be conducted this month at our 4/19 board meeting - we have 6 director places that will be open. 

The BOD meets monthly, and board members are expected to be involved with at least one of our committees - farmers market, community garden, farm to table, community education, and marketing.  If you are interested in attending any board meeting, they are open to the public.

 If you are interested in getting involved - send us an email!
