Harvest Brunch in the Field with Snooze, an A.M. Eatery

Let’s spend the morning together on the farm enjoying delicious food and drink, as well as great company. 

Denver Urban Gardens, Project Worthmore and DeLaney Community Farms are coming together to recognize and celebrate the hard work of DeLaney’s refugee farmers in a family friendly farm-to-table brunch, July 27th from 10am-12pm. The pop-up brunch will be prepared by chefs from Snooze, an A.M. Eatery featuring fresh, organically-grown produce harvested straight from DeLaney fields. 

This year Project Worthmore and Denver Urban Gardens have further expanded DeLaney’s operations – selling shares to local restaurants around Denver and employing five refugee Community Farmers who run everything from farm operations to volunteer management.

We’re proud of what we are building together, and we want you to be a part of it. 

All proceeds support DeLaney Community Farm 

Tickets are $25 for adults (10+), free for children under 10.

Fall Gardening

Fall is actually the most important season for gardeners. It’s a time for focusing on reviewing our successes and challenges, revising garden plans, preparing the soil for the following season and even sowing seeds for early spring crops! Certain crops, such as greens, herbs and garlic bulbs are planted in fall, which allows you to get a jump on spring harvest.

This hands-on workshop in DUG’s demonstration garden will provide participants with specific techniques for fall planting, soil improvement (including cover cropping), weed control, and pest management that can lead to a deeply rooted garden in the springtime. DUG’s Fall Plant Sale will immediately follow the workshop to help participants get their fall gardens started! $25 for public registration.

Worm Composting in the Classroom

By November the garden is winding down, and we start to shift our focus to garden-related lessons in the indoor classroom. In this workshop, we walk you through the process of assembling and caring for a worm bin. Learn how to connect your worm bin to life cycle and decomposition lessons, and work with your students to create compost throughout the winter, which can be used in the springtime garden. $25 for public registration.
