August 20, 2022: We Tend to Grow Gardening & Brunch Event

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.
*Please note the difference in location between this event and the July 23rd We Tend to Grow event.
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 with local produce. 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.

Date: Saturday, August 20, 2022

Time: 8:30 – 10:30 a.m.

Location: Christ the King Lutheran Church, 2300 South Patton Court, Denver, CO, 80219

Tickets: A suggested donation of $20 is to cover food costs of the seasonal brunch.  Purchase here.

ABOUT GROW LOCAL COLORADO:

For more than 12 years Grow Local Colorado has been growing in the Denver community. We have 17 gardens located throughout the city. We are a fully volunteer driven group. We not only plant, tend, harvest and donate food, we grow friendships while learning about the needs of our neighbors. We deliver our produce to over a dozen organizations serving those in need. More connections mean a stronger, healthier, happier community.

ABOUT SLOW FOOD DENVER:

Slow Food Denver cultivates the enjoyment of local food with all members of the community to create a more just and sustainable food system. We provide opportunities for people to connect with local food producers, develop a deeper understanding for preserving heritage cuisine, and support other organizations with missions and goals similar to ours — to create a food system that’s good for the people and good for the planet.
