Transient

In the spring of 2011, Sprout City Farms began to establish and maintain a one-acre farm site on the DGS school grounds. Working in collaboration with DGS and Denver Urban Gardens the farm provides:

  • Fresh veggies and herbs to the school cafeteria
  • CSA program and school farm stand for the neighborhood residents and school community. Please read our brochure to find out more about getting your own CSA share!
  • Food- and farm-related education programs for youth and adults
  • Summer internship program
  • Hands-on volunteer opportunities
  • Produce donations to local food banks and qualifying families

Check out the farm in action:
