June TUF Snapshot

From The Executive Director

It’s summer time, the heat is moving in, and the camps are starting. It’s time to have a lot of fun at the Farm. The green house and community garden are nearing completion. A new green wave is beginning.

Thank you to all who came out for the plant sale. We had 380 attendees for Plant, Eat, and Get Local. Even with the rain and cold the event was a success. Next year will be even better. Thank you to all the volunteers who made it happen. A special thanks to our master gardener, Evelyn Alton and volunteer Deb Venor who made this a great event for us.

Looking for a great way to experience the Farm? Volunteer! We will be holding a volunteer training on June 16 at 9 am. We hope to see you at the Farm.

Best,

Mike

Co-Op Gardening  

The Co-op Gardeners are off to a great start. They have grown some of the most beautiful cabbage we have ever seen. The gardeners have almost all of their crops in now and have been harvesting lettuce, spinach, Swiss chard, and radishes.

Garden Remodel  

The garden remodel continues. We got 22 flats of flowers and more potted plants in one car! It was a challenge.

Colorado College volunteers helped plant many flowers and prepared the TUF tomato bed. Look for tomatoes for sale soon!

Gardening Classes  

TUF offers gardening classes to help you learn new skills and problem-solve gardening challenges. Classes may be taken individually, $20 each, or as a value package of 3.
