Our Fashion Denver headquarters is located in an amazing warehouse full of entrepreneurs, one of them being GreenLeaf! They are doing amazing things and we are thrilled to celebrate with them! Mark your calendars for September 17th….
GreenLeaf, a Denver nonprofit, is excited to celebrate their recent move to the Park Hill neighborhood with the 2016 Farm-Raiser Benefit Concert featuring world dance band Pink Hawks. This family-friendly fundraising event will be held on Saturday, September 17th, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm at The Art Garage at 6100 East 23rd Avenue, Denver, CO 80207. Proceeds will go to support GreenLeaf’s year-round youth leadership development, urban farming, and food justice programming. Early-bird tickets start at just $15 and can be purchased by visiting www.greenleafdenver.org.
In addition to live music and dancing, the Farm-Raiser event will feature an exciting silent auction, youth-led games and tours of GreenLeaf’s new farm at the Smiley Campus two blocks away, a delicious potluck-style dinner with food and drinks from local restaurants and breweries, and opportunities to purchase fresh produce from the farm and get involved with GreenLeaf’s award-winning programming.
The celebration will be focused on successes over the past year since GreenLeaf was forced to close their long-time farm home downtown and relocate operations. Thanks to a new partnership with Denver Public Schools, the GreenLeaf youth have built a brand new quarter-acre farm on the historic Smiley Campus in North Park Hill. GreenLeaf youth crew members work together to plan and manage the farm, including a weekly farm stand and small Community Supported Agriculture program, which help offset the cost of running the farm.
