Bonfils-Stanton Lecture Series at Denver Botanic Gardens
Celebrated farming expert, Eliot Coleman, helped start the organic food movement with “The New Organic Grower” published 20 years ago. He continues to lead the way, pushing the limits of the harvest season. Coleman will share his innovative and highly successfully methods to raise crops throughout the coldest of winters. Discover how to grow produce of unparalleled freshness and quality in customized unheated or, in some cases, minimally heated, movable plastic greenhouses.
Coleman offers clear, concise details on greenhouse construction and maintenance, planting schedules, crop management, harvesting practices and even marketing methods. A passionate advocate for the revival of small-scale sustainable farming, Coleman provides a practical model for supplying fresh, locally grown produce during the winter season, even in climates where conventional wisdom says it can’t be done.
