Beautiful Junk and Valuable Compost

Today and tomorrow, The Action Center’s semi-annual “Beautiful Junk” sale is going on at the Jeffco Fairgrounds (map).  This is a fun sale, where almost everything sells for less than $10, and all proceeds go to support their mission of providing an immediate response to basic human needs and promoting pathways to self-sufficiency for Jefferson County residents and the homeless.  Admission is $3, but if you bring two cans of food for donation, you’ll earn $1 off your admission price.  For more information, call Pam McPhee at (303) 237-7704.

Tomorrow morning, you have an opportunity to visit two urban farms in Jefferson County, courtesy of the CSU Extension office.  Join us for an educational farm tour to learn about soil health, raising alpacas, manure composting, starting a new farm, and grazing management. This tour will visit two urban farms in Jefferson County.

Tour starts and ends at the CSU Extension office (ECMR Room). Adult $15 / Couple $20 / Student $10.  Please register in advance.
