The spring growing season is just around the corner, and gardeners can now sell their homegrown produce and cottage foods directly to neighbors after a June 2014 update to Denver’s Zoning Code. To help prepare gardeners to run a successful home food business, Colorado State University is offering a training on general food safety and hygiene, permissible foods for sale under Colorado’s Cottage Food Act, and requirements for compliance with the state law for food preparation, storage, transport, and sale. The next training will be held on Tuesday, March 17 from 9am-12pm in Golden, CO. Registration is $30 per participant, and details and registration information can be found here.
