Please join us on Friday, August 10, at the Denver County Fair for an organic vegetable gardening event featuring Jane Shellenberger. Jane will present her program starting at 4:00 p.m. on the Farm and Garden Pavilion Stage and at 5:00 p.m. sign copies of her new book “Organic Gardener’s Companion: Growing Vegetables in the West” at the WesternGardeners.com booth.
To get you in the mood for Jane’s presentation, here’s a glimpse into the pages of her book:
If you’ve tried to grow an organic vegetable garden in our region of the country, you know that gardening is difficult here. Lean soils, little precipitation, low humidity, harsh winds, and inopportune freezing weather make vegetable gardening an extreme undertaking.
There’s something for everyone at the second annual Denver County Fair, August 10-12, at the National Western Complex.
That’s what’s happening with the Denver County Fair.
This one-of-a-kind county fair is a little bit urban, a little bit country and a lot of everything else. Plan on more than 275 events on 13 stages in 3 days!
Just think…a fair that’s entirely indoors, carnival and all. In addition to all of the pavilions the fair featured last year, a Geek Pavilion will be part of the fun at this year’s event.
Other new offerings at the fair include more local food vendors, a food truck roundup, a Colorado Beer Garden, more live competitions, a Freak Show featuring the Enigma, and a Zombie Dance party.
