Urban Garden Kick-Off
Thursday, May 23, 2013 from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM (MDT)
The Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Colorado maintain and harvest this garden all summer long. It's purpose is to demonstrate the beauty of edible gardens, engage community participation, an inspire Denver citizens to grow their own vegetable gardens. In addition, we donate all the produce to The Gathering Place, a day time drop-in shelter for woman, children and transgender individuals who are experiencing homelessness and poverty.
We have an exciting special events planned with Grow Local, the People's Fair, City Beautiful 2.0 and Cooking Matters. Also, don't miss one of the Civic Center Park's Conservancy's Bike-In Movie nights. Biking, gardening, eating, drinking and watching a movie outside sounds like the perfect Denver evening.
