Event description

Description

In the heart of historic Larimer Square now lies an 18,000 sq. ft. rooftop farm, Larimer Uprooted. Meet at our community center to find out more about our greening of Larimer Square


Larimer Uprooted is an urban farm and community space that sits on the top of the Larimer Square Parking Garage, located in the heart of downtown Denver.
  • 2/3rds of the growing space are in vegetable and fruit production, while the remaining 1/3rd are filled with native, perennial plants reflective of local, surrounding flora.
  • Interspersed among these beds are murals, tables to gather, garden beds for education, and places for community members to sit and convene
We have three main goals for this project:
  1. To produce food and ecosystem services - And through the production of food learn and disseminate best growing practices so that we can share such knowledge and inspire others to do the same thing
  2. To create a community space - to develop a space that not only serves as a point of gathering but a space were people can connect to the surrounding flora - a more wild space - within the heart of the city.
  3. To educate and learn to educate others on where food comes from, to bring farming to an urban environment and get people (especially children) thinking about both their food and themselves as a part of the natural world and ecosystem in which we live.
