Garfield County Agriculture Project Receives State Grant

Glenwood Springs—Garfield County received the state’s second largest grant from the Colorado Department of Agriculture.  The grant for just over $75,000.00 will help pay for a new energy efficient greenhouse.  The ag department partnered with the Colorado Energy Office to find counties that combined agricultural energy efficiency using renewable sources.  All told, the state awarded over $300,000.00 in grants.  The largest one for over $81,000.00, went to Jefferson County for a greenhouse project.  Other grants were awarded to Moffat and Rio Blanco Counties for irrigation projects.  The Colorado Agricultural Energy Efficiency program provides a turnkey approach that makes improvements easy for producers with audits, site assessments and technical support to about 60 ag producers every every year.
