Harvest Mountain - Farm Gardens

Growing more four season urban farm gardens is our vision. This means that most of our land will be through land use agreements with others who support urban agriculture. At each location we will teach people four season growing of organic vegetables, herbs and fruits - for farm garden plots or production farming and we will grow vegetables for sale to provide income for the non profit corporation. We will have workshops and connect with city agencies to help develop urban farming zoning and food system assessments.

We are starting a steering committee to examine a facility in metro Denver to teach URBAN AGRICULTURE and a Food System Assessment group for Jefferson County Barbara Moore is the leader for school education for Wheat Ridge Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Task Force. She is also doing a PILOT PROJECT for urban agriculture with the city of Lakewood and Ralston House non profit. Next location is in Brighton on a four acre plot to teach youth how to grow organic vegetables and others in Brighton area. She will be having a year round community garden with garden plots and greenhouse at that facility. Again people will learn to grow and teach others. ORGANIC GROWING is our emphasis. We will sell produce to local restaurants and are selling at local Farmers Markets. Barbara is also volunteer coordinator with the Chat field Denver Botanic Garden Farm in Little ton. She is helping to bring Jefferson County students to the farm to learn about agriculture.

The Harvest Mountain Community Garden at 4322 Xenon Street is helping the Head Start students in Wheat Ridge to learn about growing through donating Earth Boxes for the students to use and bringing them to the garden for garden parties. By end of 2011 the non profit will have four locations with over 5 acres of growing area.
