The garden has really taken off this summer thanks to many of our community members. The purpose of the garden was to educate, bring people together, and supply healthy food to the community. We can say with certainty that we are doing all of those things. We have had cooking and nutrition groups use the food to cook, and we have had people harvest and take food home to their family to eat. A special thank you to Cooking Matters for creating amazing signs to put next to the crops to label and put growing information on them. We will continue to develop the area, and if you are at all interested in getting involved please don’t hesitate to call (303 739 1580) or come on in.
