G4G Denver Teaming Up with DUG Block to Block Community Garden Build!

Denver Urban Gardens has an annual community garden build called Block to Block, sponsored by Tito’s Vodka. 14 lucky G4G volunteers will get a free food truck lunch followed by three sunny hours of good, dirty fun.

Denver Urban Gardens’ mission is to provide the access, skills, and resources for people to grow healthy food in community and regenerate urban green spaces. They currently operate 190 community gardens throughout Metro Denver, including more than 70 school-based community gardens.

Date: Saturday, August 20
Time:
1:00pm – 4:00pm (Arrive around 12:30pm to eat free food without being rushed!)
Location: 8854 W La Salle Ave Denver, CO 80227

Project Tasks: Tasks will vary, as we are the last of four build shifts in the new garden, but may include general clean up, building garden boxes, adding fencing, filling in soil/mulch, and laying pathways.

Project Lead: Ben Gunderson
Volunteers Needed: 14
Age restrictions: 14+
