Colorado State University Extension – Golden Plains Area

The Golden Plains Area Extension covers the 5 counties in the northeast corner of Colorado. These counties are Sedgwick, Phillips, Washington, Yuma and Kit Carson. Our GPA Extension disseminates research-based information through different venues such as programming tailored to area audiences, public events, articles in newspapers and to various social media platforms including websites, blogs and Facebook.

As a Horticulture Program Associate programming covers all horticulture topics including alternative ag and current trends. Again, programming is tailored to area schools, Master Gardeners, community organizations, Green Industry clientele and the general public.

As part of the horticulture programming we have demonstration gardens to assist in teaching. We have a High and Dry Garden, a native plant garden, several Plant Select Gardens and community gardens.
