2nd Annual Customer Appreciation Party
We are thrilled to announce our 2nd Annual Customer Appreciation Party that will be held at our Pagosa Springs Domes from 12 to 4 pm on Saturday, September 11th. This will be a fantastic opportunity to socialize with current dome owners and meet people who are passionate about gardening. We will be offering tours of all five of our Growing Domes, along with Growing Dome gardening classes taught by some of our experts. There will be fresh food, local craft beer, games for kids & adults, and music. We will also have Growing Spaces swag to give away. Please RSVP using the form below. These invitation-only events fill up fast, and we wouldn’t want to run out of beer. HAHA.
Durango Farmers Market is back
Growing Spaces will be sponsoring the Durango Farmers Market again this year. The market is held every Saturday Morning from the second week in May to the last Saturday in October, 8 am to noon (and 9 am to noon in October) in the parking lot of TBK Bank, located at 259 W. 9th street, across from the City Transit Center. The Transit Center offers free parking on the weekends.
Growing Spaces will be giving away Growing Dome swag, gardening gear, t-shirts, seed packets, tumblers, and chatting about year-round food production and gardening on July 17th and 31st from 8:00 a.m – 12:00 pm.
The market is a venue for local agriculturalists, artisans, ready-to-eat, value-added, and service vendors to meet and share the fruits of their labor with the community in Durango and the other surrounding communities. They have quality vendors who fit into the theme of local production, sustainability, and healthy lifestyles. They also feature a different musician or band each week, with a few dance performances sprinkled into each session. Additionally, the market includes community groups that offer important information and ways to get involved in the local community. They also feature young agriculturalists in our Incubator Program, giving them a chance to get their start in local food production.
