Feeding Many, Inc. partners with many different groups and organizations to grow food, teach sustainability and educate people on how to provide themselves and their families with much needed food.
Churches – there are several churches around the Denver area that have generously provided land to build gardens. These gardens are then rented out for a small fee to people who want to grow food. These growers are strongly encouraged to donate garden surplus to the church or a local food bank.
Schools – many schools are now putting in gardens to teach students about sustainability and growing food. The food from the gardens are used in school lunches so the students get to eat the “fruits of their own labor.”Again, any excess is donated to local food banks.
Community Groups – We’re starting to see independent groups come together to plant gardens and use these to help people grow food. They can be a beautiful place to visit like the one planned in Broomfield, CO (more on that in a later post). We also partner with Jovial Concepts, which is incorporating gardens into schools & communities; teaching students how to become self-sufficient; and bringing about awareness of the needs of the under-served.
- Individuals – sometimes people have excess space and are willing to make that land available for building gardens or putting in small orchards. If you know of any places that can support gardens, or an orchard, please contact us and let us know!
