With 300+ days of sunshine (but only an average 110 frost-free days) Durango is the perfect place to use season extension techniques to prolong our growing season. Want to learn how to make a low-tunnel or a cold frame? Or how to use Christmas lights or Walls of Water to protect your plants? Join us in learning all the best techniques for your home garden to get the most out for the growing season (aka more veggies for you!).
