About the Expo:
Informative, 20-minute classes such as “Keeping Backyard Chickens” and “Tree Planting, Done Right” will be hosted throughout the day at various times so be sure to check out the schedule here. In addition to these concise lessons, 45-minute length classes will focus on everything from cheese making to efficient home energy usage.
Demonstrations will take place on the trade show floor and will cover topics such as bike helmet safety, composting with worms, and embryology. Be sure to bring all your backyard gardening concerns to the Master Gardener Question and Answer Booth so you can permanently eradicate persistent weeds, learn how to keep squirrels from stealing your cherry tomatoes, and more.
Hands on activities, information-packed lectures, and 4-H animal demonstrations can really work up an appetite. Swing by food trucks IPIE and Fajita Junction/The Dog Haus for an artisanal personal pan pizza or gourmet hot dogs with all the fixings. A pop-up cottage food market will also have a variety of goodies to take home.
The state of Colorado is synonymous with sustainable progression and environmentally conscious businesses and residents.

Life in this quiet Denver suburb is anything but dull.
