Greater Park Hill Community is working hard to become a member of the Sustainable Neighborhood Network of the City and County of Denver.
Some of our great Sustainability programs include:
- Our Garden in A Box program and educational workshops – our second annual Garden-in-a-Box Giveaway and GPHC Food Pantry Garden Workday on Saturday, May 13 from 9am-11am. We hope you will join us. To learn more, see our facebook event and register at this link.
- Our Helping Hands Directory is a program we are starting to pair those who have experience gardening or just some helpful hands to loan with novice gardeners. If you’re interested, please complete this form and we’ll be in touch.
- Storm Water Forums and Workshops – We plan to host community meetings to increase knowledge and awareness around storm water issues in 2017. In 2016, we hosted to community meetings concerning storm water in the city as well as several smaller conversations with community, staff and students from CU Boulder due to neighbor interest. We will be using the amazing work produced by the students to help inform our storm water efforts and to serve as reproducible models to all our neighbors.
- Calling all Community Gardeners! We are working on creating a network of gardens throughout Greater Park Hill. Do you already participate in one? Is there vacant land or a patch of space that could be used for gardening? We are hoping to encourage citizens to build gardens in our community and to consider donating a small portion of your vegetables to the Food Pantry and Free Farm Stand at GPHC so that our neighbors in need have access to fresh produce. These gardens can be an example throughout the city of utilizing space which provides fresh produce, greens our environment and is an example of community collaboration. We are interested in your ideas surrounding this and are also looking for community members who might be interested in facilitating this initiative. If you are interested in helping facilitate this program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org If you have a community garden or plot you would like to include, please complete our form at this link or below:
