Cassey Anderson- CSU Extension Adams County

Are you looking for something to do this weekend? The Front Range Extension offices have joined forces to put together an amazing day of classes and vendors at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield. Registration is only $10 and you can participate (kids and your adults 17 and under get in free!)  in a variety of classes and demonstrations. Come meet your local extension agents, coordinators, local experts and specialists, and Master Gardeners and have a chance to learn about all that Extension has to offer!

There will be an entire classroom devoted to learning about making beer and cheese! There will also be numerous speakers on topics including water-wise gardening, landscape weeds, rain barrel use, rainwater harvesting, edible landscaping, backyard greenhouses, backyard fruit trees and small fruits, native plants and more. If concerns about insects are more your speed you can learn about pests in our area such as Japanese Beetle or Emerald Ash Borer. 

There will be a variety of hands-on demonstrations and activities: 4-H will feature STEM rocketry and robotics, helmet safety, and if the weather permits 4-H will have animals on show. Horticulture experts will demonstrate tree planting, and Master Gardeners will be showcasing vermicomposting.
If that isn’t enough there will also be food trucks on site so you don’t have to go far afield to get some food in between all of the incredible classes and programs you can choose from! Registration day-of is only $10 payable at the door. For more details on classes and events please go to:
