Denver Green School Community Farm, by Sprout City Farms

Welcome!

Sprout City Farms is an urban agriculture nonprofit in Denver, CO with the mission of cultivating urban farms on underutilized land, rooting community farms in the city and bringing good food to neighborhoods. SCF envisions a thriving local food system supported by a network of city farms that nourish, and are nourished by, their surrounding community. SCF currently manages the Denver Green School Community Farm, a one-acre organic vegetable farm established in the spring of 2011 on the grounds of the Denver Green School (a public ECE-8th grade elementary and middle school in southeast Denver focused on teaching the concepts of sustainability). The farm provides fresh produce to the school cafeteria through a first-of-its-kind Farm to Cafeteria program, as well as to the community through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share program, weekly farm stand, and produce donations. SCF also hosts numerous community events and volunteer days throughout the year in addition to offering educational programs to the school and community.

In Spring of 2014, SCF began building the Mountair Park Community Farm in partnership with the City of Lakewood on an acre of Mountair Park at 13th & Depew St (near Colfax & Sheridan). This farm will work with the Two Creeks Neighborhood to develop similar food production, distribution, and education programs to those at the Denver Green School, as the community sees fit.

Please come visit either of our community farms any time--especially on a Friday or Saturday morning 10-12, April through October, when we host regular weekly volunteer days!
