2nd Annual Winter on the Farm: Sowing Seeds in the Greenhouse

  • Chatfield Farms 8500 West Deer Creek Canyon Road Littleton, CO, 80128 United States (map)

At Chatfield Farms, an extension of Denver Botanic Gardens, growers cultivate six acres of mixed vegetables for their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program while also operating weekly, affordable farm stands at both Denver Human Services and City of Denver locations. At these farm stands, Chatfield Farms hosts cooking demos, nutrition classes (courtesy of Cooking Matters), and Double Up Food Bucks Colorado which gives SNAP customers twice the buying power to purchase fruits and vegetables.

We'll be seeding onions in the greenhouse for the coming season!

Parents and children are welcome!

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm: Arrival and greenhouse tour

3:00 pm - 4:00 pm: Seeding onions in the greenhouse
