Anythink Wright Farms launches Community Garden, plots available

Customers are invited to harvest vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers at Anythink Wright Farms. 

Just in time for the growing season, Anythink Wright Farms is launching the latest addition to the Anythink Garden Project, an initiative in partnership with Denver Urban Gardens to promote healthy living in the community.

Do you love getting your hands dirty? Are you a fresh food fanatic? Join us in planting and harvesting vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs. Additionally, we encourage our community gardeners to interact with their neighbors and attend planning meetings, workshops and other community days.

Interested in participating? Meet organizers from Denver Urban Gardens and the Wright Farms neighborhood, and find out more about the community garden plans and how you can sign up to have your own plot on Tuesday, April 30 at 6:30 pm.

I am SO excited that Anythink Wright Farms will be adding this community garden project to their schedule of activities! =) My boys and I visit Wright Farms often for different Reading Times during the school year and your summer activities. I would LOVE to be able to participate in this program but will be out of town for the Info Meeting. Will there still be an opportunity for those who cannot attend the meeting to still register for a plot? I know my boys would LOVE to get their hands dirty and have fun growing their own veggies =)

Thanks,
Jen

The garden is the missing link that will connect the community to Anythink Libraries, it will add life and beauty to the busy intersection, encourage healthier living and increase curiousity, and what a beautiful contrast between ideas-a innovative technological structure, the library, and the natural creative structures of nature, the garden, right next to each other. Anythink Garden Project will be an excellent learning tool and experience zone and a very cool way to introduce Anythink Libraries vision as being a participatory library, to the public. It's an awesome process to experience from seed/transplanting to harvest, to food, the evolution of a plant, I look forward to watching it evolve. Congrats Wright Farms, you are in for an experience zone.
