Want to be a bigger part of the sustainable agriculture movement?
Friday, August 19
9 am to 1 pm
The Urban Farm at Stapleton
10200 Smith Rd, Denver, CO 80239
We will be planting about 40-45 5-gallon fruit trees donated by The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation.
The trees are part of an educational program which focuses on the importance of trees for the environment and fruit in the diet.
KIDS’ ACTIVITIES: a fun fruit dance, fruit tree identification activity, facts/quiz, and fruit snack preparation demo.
After the program, a planting demo for the adult volunteers will be given and, if the students are able to remain, we’ll plant the orchard all together. If they have to leave, we’ll finish planting the orchard with the adult volunteers.
The Urban Farm at Stapleton focuses on improving the lives of children living in high-risk,
urbanized neighborhoods by helping to create a sense of positive self-regard and self-reliance, a strong work ethic, and hope.
Lend your hands to make urban agriculture successful!
Lunch and beverages provided.
Don’t forget sunscreen, appropriate clothing and water bottles.
We would love to make this a zero-waste event, so try to bring your own ‘picnic kit’ for lunch
– we’ll have back ups for anyone who forgets or can’t do it.
