Garden Manuals

An introduction to gardening in Colorado

In 2010, Amy Finstrom, our community garden intern, prepared this highly informative gardening guide geared towards vegetable gardening in Colorado. Whether you've been gardening for a few decades or a few days, this guide surely has information that will benefit your garden. Topics include soil ammendments, cover crops, varietal selection, companion planting, beneficial insects, and so much more!

Our intern in 2011, Bethany Heineman, also prepared a valuable educational resource for our gardeners. Bethany went further into the topic of organic pest identification and management. This guide is loaded with color photos of common garden pests and recipes for organic insecticides that call for ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen.
