We Tend to Grow
September 26, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am$10
A morning of dirty hands, good food and new thoughts.
We Tend To Grow is a collaboration between Grow Local Colorado, Slow Food Denver and you. Our hope is, we’ll all leave nourished, enriched and a little closer to our food, our communities and each other.
Deep in the soil, the root of a plant is where everything starts. And that’s where this morning will begin as well. We’ll garden a bit*, enjoy a seasonal brunch** prepared by Chef Linda Kiker, talk and laugh together. We’ll likely form some new connections: to the plants, to each other and to the possible difference in our lives those two simple things can make.
We will be gardening at Christ the King Lutheran Church, one of Grow Local Colorado’s gardens. This is their third year of growing in CTK’s garden. This sheet mulch garden was created in 2018 by the congregation and Grow Local Colorado with 36 yards of wood chips and manure. On average this garden produces over 1,000 pounds of fresh produce, all donated to Community Ministry, a food pantry serving southwest Denver.
Tickets are a minimum $10 donation. All proceeds support Slow Food Denver and Grow Local Colorado.
Limited to 10 tickets
