Planting of the Garden

Civic Center Park

Join the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Colorado (RPCVCO) and Grow Local Colorado on Thursday, May 17 at 5:30 p.m. for the annual planting of the garden in Civic Center Park. This will the 8th year in a row that RPCVCO has partnered with Grow Local Colorado on this garden, with all harvested produce going to the Gathering Place.

Gloves, shovels, and plants will be provided, all you need to bring is a willingness to get a little dirty.

Since 2010, in partnership with Grow Local Colorado, which provides seedlings, tools and occasional weeding expertise, numerous RPCVCO volunteers have donated more than 950 hours of time to harvest 2,400 pounds of produce, valued at $4,500.

Can't make this time? Look for times throughout the summer to help with weeding and harvesting of the garden.
