I recently ran across a valuable resource that will be of interest to many who garden and maintain land here in Douglas County. Colorado State University Extension has a website specifically for those with small acreages. But don't worry - even if you don't live on 'small acreage', there is a lot of great information on the website's pages for everyone regardless of property size.
Colorado Small Acreage Management is all about improving land stewardship by helping landowners understand and manage their property resources (soil, water, animals, plants, and air).
Check out their Recorded Webinars page - so much information and resources! They also have a robust Topics page.
Examples of the kinds of webinars offered include:
- Growing apples below 7000 ft.
- Fire Resistant Landscape Plants
- Raspberries for Colorado gardeners below 7000 ft.
- Gardening: High Tunnel Specialty Crop Production in Colorado
- Waterwise Landscapes
