Brian Wolfe brings new life to the Midway Community Garden

PUEBLO, Colo.—Brian Wolfe transformed someone’s yard into the Midway Community Garden, on May 24. He was the direct support musical act. Stefan Findley and Aaron Findley were the opening acts and Frank Roquemore was the direct support.

Wolfe provides vocals and strums the guitar. Roquemore plays the djembe, as the special guest.
Wolfe took time of his remodeling to play songs and began his recital with “Worms”. He said he wrote the song about the animals because they were wonderful beings. He stated how much they contribute to the growth of a garden. Bryson Foster accompanied him briefly, while Roquemore continued to strike the djembe.

After starting off with “Worms”, Wolfe placed a capo onto one of the frets of his guitar. He stated he would play one more song because he had to go to work. He continued to play “Adam and Eve”, brought the song to a conclusion, went to work and had Roquemore provide the space with music.

As volunteers continued to work turn the front yard into a community garden, Wolfe unplugged a black guitar and proceeded to walk over to the neighbor’s driveway. He pulled up a seat, rested and ended his recital with “Kingdom”.

Once the music had concluded and applause was received, Wolfe had a questions and answers session. After sitting down, he educated the audience member of the goal for his and Josh Kienitz’s company, Evolve. His statement is as follow:

“So Evolve has been, it’s existed for about a year now and last year we started Community Garden up by the state fairgrounds. And this year we’ve built two garden beds for school, we’ve built eight garden beds today at the Midway Community Garden. Our goal for the next five years is to see every school in town having at least one Evolve garden bed in it, every park having some garden beds in it that we’ve built, pretty much every neighborhood that has an open space in Pueblo being involved in what Evolve is doing. And we just really want to see Evolve become of the defining things, in Pueblo. So that when people think of Pueblo, they think of the city that has the gardens. They think of the city that grows food for each other and the city that loves each other. And that’s just one of our goals with Evolve and just to see that happen.”
