The Colorado State University Extension Office will hold a workshop about gardening and farming in the colder months from noon to 5 p.m. Thursday at Pine River Library, 395 Bayfield Center Drive in Bayfield.
Gardeners and farmers will learn how to stretch the Southwest Colorado growing season and extend garden life into cooler months. Topics will range from basic techniques, such as covering crops with frost blankets, to using larger structures, such as hoophouses, greenhouses and grow domes.
Techniques will be offered to control insects and diseases when growing under cover and affordable ways to convert a simple structure into refrigerated storage for perishable fruits and vegetables.
Cost is $10.
