About

Project Helping Kindfulness for Kids Event

Nearly 1 in 5 households with children reported food hardship and more than 25% of working families in Colorado do not have enough food to meet their basic needs. By transforming 40 urban lawns into organic gardens, Jovial Gardens will grow enough fresh produce to feed 250 Colorado families. Using gardens as a classroom, participants learn sustainability, environmental awareness, healthy food practices, and how to combat obesity and other health issues associated with food hardships.

WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?

Project Helping volunteers will help Jovial Concepts participants with set up and maintenance for their urban gardens including turning the soil, seeding, planting, weeding, and harvesting, depending on the time of the season. As space is limited, make sure to register before participating in this awesome event!
