Volunteer group Grow Local Colorado is growing vegetable gardens to feed Denver’s homeless population.

Grow Local Colorado, a volunteer group dedicated to growing local food, will be transforming Denver’s parks into vegetable gardens in order to feed the homeless women and children in the city. With funding from and partnerships with organizations such as Denver’s Peace Corp, Chipotle, and The Beanstalk Foundation, the group will create gardens in a total of seven parks. They hope to harvest around 1,500 pounds of produce by the end of summer, which will be donated to The Gathering Place, a center that helps women and children experiencing homelessness and poverty. According to Metro Denver Homeless Initiative, there were 11,061 homeless people in Denver 2009, 68.4 percent of which are women or children.
