Do you have any idea what you're community is capable of? That's the general idea behind Feed Denver - a non profit that looks to educate and develop economic independence and sustainability through small scale urban farms and farmers markets. Every community is made of individuals, and each of those individuals is capable of doing great things when they work together.
The InPower Festival will feature an Urban Street Fair and a Local Music Showcase, tickets for both are currently on sale. The Festival will conclude the InPower Week - a series of events and conversations centered around urban farming and a film festival featuring movies about food. Event times and locations will be available online at FeedDenver.com.
Sustainability Park is an initiative between the Denver Housing Authority and the GreenLeaf Denver project to turn a vacant city block (on Lawrence, between 25th and 26th) into a green showcase that features dozens of sustainable projects. Currently the block is a working urban farm with future plants to develop green apartment buildings, solar energy, and more.
