Fund Grow Local Colorado's 2013 growing season!
Make Denver healthier and more sustainable!
Spring is springing and you know what that means: It's time to grow. Food! The magnetic, masterful and magical dynamic duo of Dana Miller and Barbara Masoner have their eyes set on Grow Local Colorado's most successful growing season yet. To make 2013 the best, they need your help. Donate here to fund Grow Local Colorado's growing program for the year (comprehensive budget below), giving them the opportunity to plant, tend, and reap some of the Mile High City's most delicious, nutritious, responsible produce! They grew 3,128 POUNDS of tasty produce last year and distributed it to 8 communities in need. With your help, they will up the ante this year and every year to come, ensuring that Denverites in need have fresh, local, healthful food. Since beginning with 1 garden in 2009, Dana and Barbara and hundreds of Grow Local volunteers oversaw 8 gardens in 2012. Let's nurture Grow Local Colorado and keep them growing!
