April 26 Crop Mob at The Garden

This will be a Saturday to remember. Not only are we privileged to be holding a crop mob for a much loved local institution, Aleece And Kris Raw‘s ‘The Garden,’ but this crop mob will be filmed as part of the One Day in Denver project:

Note that we’ll be asking participants to sign a waiver, and you could be included in the documentary TV series that results!

Our host farmer, the Garden, is a community food and events center in North Park Hill that is managed, funded and supported by the members that use it and the community it serves. For people who want to eat good food while helping others do it too, they offer opportunities to connect, share, learn and grow. Their organically grown gardens serve the non-profit Sunshine Food Project food buying club, Mo Betta Green farmers market, a variety of farm-to-table events, cooking classes and workshops, neighborhood food pantries and more.

We’ll be helping Aleece and Kris with various projects around the Garden, including building, conditioning and planting straw bale gardens, helping with their first hops project, painting the chicken coop and more. This will be a fun day with relatively light-duty work and a fantastic meal provided.

    I have come down with a bad cold and won't be able to make it after all. I won't feel up to it and I don't want to get anyone sick. Hope to make the next crop mob, these are fun!

    Is parking going to be a problem? Or more to the point where do I park?

      There's plenty of parking available there Joe. Both street parking and a spacious parking lot are available...

      Thanks for the reply. I did look at it on Google and saw the parking lot. Thanks.

    I will not be coming, much as I'd like to. This sounds really fun, but it looks like you have plenty of help. I'm going to lend a hand to Michael Alcazar's polyculture project at West HS to make sure it gets done. I wish I didn't have to make these hard choices. Have a wonderful time!

      We'll miss you Laura, but Michael's event is certainly a worthy one!
