Sunday Brunch in the Field

 

Please join us for the 3rd Annual Sunday Brunch in the Field, a farm-to-table fundraising event featuring food from DeLaney and our partners around Colorado. Snooze, an AM Eatery, will be preparing a delicious breakfast along with fresh fruit and beverages. Brunch will be held on the ground, so bring your picnic blanket, chairs and whatever else you might need. Please help us keep waste to a minimum- bring your own plates and silverware! Suggested donation is $20 per adult and $10 per child under the age of twelve years of age. Brunch is limited to 100 people. RSVP here.



Helping Kids Get Healthy Workshops

 

These unique workshops are designed for teachers and volunteers who work in youth education programs that focus on nutrition and gardening. Join DUG’s Education Team to learn different ways to use your school garden and how to teach hands-on lessons in organic gardening and nutrition. Workshops are offered seasonally and each workshop highlights unique, seasonally-appropriate lessons from DUG's School Garden and Nutrition Curriculum. Each workshop includes a garden-related lesson, a nutrition lesson and a snack component.

Community Gardens and Health

 

Since 2004, Denver Urban Gardens and the Colorado School of Public Health have worked together, through the Gardens for Growing Healthy Communities (GGHC) community-based research initiative, to explore how gardens, as neighborhood places, support healthy living. In short, the results of this research partnership have shown what community gardeners have known all along- that community gardens are good for neighborhoods!
