Starting with spring and moving through winter, topics will include the allure and application of plant foliage varieties to spice up your landscape, using your garden’s bounty to fill your pantry with culinary delights sure to impress everyone at your table, and successfully extending your growing season with tips from one of gardening’s beloved experts.

Completed details, along with registration links, can be found on the Denver Botanic Gardens website.

New to Slow Food? Join our holiday potluck!

joshHello all, I’m new to Denver and the Slow Food movement. You may be, too. But I encourage you to join us at the holiday potluck and not to be intimidated! At first, I was. I was scared to cook something for my new friends at Slow Food, thinking I’d be judged or it wouldn’t be “slow enough” for them. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Slow Food Denver is one of the most welcoming groups of people I’ve ever been around. So please join us for this special event, slow down, have some great food, and make some new friends.  Register here:  https://sfdholiday.eventbrite.com

Support us on Colorado Gives Day – December 10th, 2013

Web Ad CGD VertRectangleLinkedSupport Slow Food Denver on Colorado Gives Day! On Tuesday, December 10, 2013, Coloradans will come together again to raise millions of dollars for nonprofits like ours. Last year, a remarkable $15.7 million was distributed to Colorado nonprofits. Our goal is to raise $5000 on Colorado Gives Day to help advance the cause of good, clean, fair food for all in the Denver area.  Your funds will help to keep programs like the school garden Seed-to-Table Alliance and the CAFE Microgrant series alive!

Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day asks you to give to your favorite charities through the website ColoradoGives.org, an online giving resource featuring every nonprofit participating in Colorado Gives Day. On this website we share our goals, accomplishments and much more.

100 percent of your donation will come to us.

When you give online any time on December 10, the value of your donation will be increased by the FirstBank Incentive Fund.  You can set up your donation ahead of time by going to www.coloradogives.org/slowfooddenver to make sure you don’t miss out on this great opportunity.

Show support and donate where you live!
