As spring bursts forth in Saguache County, friends and neighbors shake off the winter cold, welcoming warmer weather and new life. It’s a good time to check in with the Orient Land Trust (OLT) and see what’s new at the historic Everson Ranch, Valley View Hot Springs and beyond.
Calling all green thumbs! Everson Ranch garden is starting up for its second year of growing! We have been busy preparing the soil, putting up greenhouses and looking forward to another season of gardening fun! Remember last October’s Harvest Dinner serving up all those delicious farm to table delicious goodies? Now you can become involved from seed to table, by helping them with some gardening. Get your hands dirty at the historic Everson Ranch. Details can be found HERE.
Have you been out to the ranch lately? If not then be sure to stay in touch with them, and sign up for their newsletter here. This summer they have some fun events on tap, including the Kids Science Camp 2017 which unfortunately is FULL, but all the more reason to keep their event on your news feed. Stay connected HERE.
