Keeping Friendly to the Environment
||Change size of
Centaur Rising (CR) is located at Anchorage Farm (AF) near
Evergreen, Conifer and Bailey, Colorado. Here eight acres
of land are preserved as a pristine habitat for Rocky Mountain
native wildflowers, grasses, trees, shrubs, wildlife and birds. AF is adjacent to “critical deer and elk winter range” as
designated by the Jefferson
County Planning Commission. Anchorage Farm
has long endeavored to protect nature and the environment compatible with horse keeping.
AF also has abundant domestic flower gardens. Horse manure is recycled as a viable soil
amendment to native ground. CR seeks to continue to pursue
this mission by working with Colorado
State University to make
manure even more useful to gardeners. This project is
driven by scientific analysis of both the soil and the decomposing
manure. How about some free aged horse manure for your garden
First-time horse owners rarely anticipate the environmental
degradation that horses can cause. People have no idea
of the amount of land required to "pasture" a horse in Colorado. CR
seeks to educate local horse owners on environmental-protection-compatible horse keeping practices. This also includes
teaching the minimum impact of horses used on public lands.
