Support Urban Farmers Training at Feed Denver

by Feed Denver: Urban Farms & Markets


We all understand how important local food production is not only to our health but to our economy BUT where will all those new farmers come from? At Feed Denver we are training urban farmers.

In Colorado we are only producing 0.1% (yes, that's POINT one percent!) of the food we eat. That's a pretty scary number! I have another number for you: 5.7. We spend $5.7 billion on food each year in Metro Denver. In the middle of this recession we are sending all that money outside of our city and state and economy...a city, state, and economy that is struggling with unemployment and fresh food access issues. If we put that, farming, jobs in the city. Sounding interesting?


Feed Denver grows urban agriculture one farm and one farmer at a time. We are not only creating urban farms to explore and research how it can be done, but we are training farmers along the way. These are the future farmers of America.

Long-Term Impact

Our farmers are women and young people, refugees and immigrants, senior citizens and mothers. The best way to create healthy fresh food access for the children in our cities is to provide jobs in the fresh food growing industry in our own community.
