Register for county farm tour by Friday

By Mindy Rappoport

The Boulder County Parks and Open Space Department and the Colorado State University Extension are providing advisory committees and the public with tours of Boulder County farms to educate them about agriculture and the county’s cropland policy.

Registration closes on Friday, June 17, for the next tour, which is on Tuesday, June 21, and costs $5 per person.

Participants on the three-hour long tour will travel to three Boulder County farms that manage crops, vegetables and livestock.

Farmers at each location will teach participants about agricultural production systems and the issues Boulder County faces in regards to open space lands. Citizens can use this knowledge to stay informed about Boulder County’s cropland policy, which outlines guiding principles the county will consider when making decisions on open space properties managed as cropland.

Boulder County Parks and Open Space Department staff will be on each air-conditioned bus that participants travel in. The buses are equipped with restrooms.

Participants should wear durable shoes, dress for the weather, and bring a water bottle. Snacks and drinks will be provided. Tours are not recommended for children younger than 12 years old.

The next tour, which will take place on Aug. 9, will travel to three more Boulder County farms, says Boulder County agricultural resource specialist Meaghan Huffman.

To register for the June 21 tour, visit agtours.eventbrite.com.
