Colorado State University Extension is offering the Urban Farm Production Course for aspiring farmers who would like to learn essential production skills. Join us as we cover key components that farmers must know to have a successful growing season. From planning to harvesting, you will gain valuable knowledge and hands-on experience that will help you on your own production farm. Each session starts with instruction from an expert in the field. Then participants will actively apply what they learned as they engage in on-farm activities with our host site, Pioneer Farmsteaders. Make sure you sign up for this in-depth course today!
