DeLaney Community Farm is a partnership between Denver Urban Gardens (DUG) and Project Worthmore (PWM). The joint mission at DeLaney is to support refugees from the local community through community-based food security programs. The primary goals of DeLaney are to: Provide the space, support, resources, and expertise for refugees to grow healthy, organically produced food for themselves and their broader community. Foster community development and integration through education and training programs, and relationship building. Connect refugees to the local fresh food economy through meaningful and dignified experiences. As well as demonstrate small-scale, sustainable agricultural practices that reconnect refugees with the land in a productive and environmentally responsible manner.
WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?
Join Project Helping volunteers to support the needs of DeLaney Community Farm, including (but not limited to): planting, mulching, weeding, cleaning hand tools, painting, and more. DeLaney is run by Yu Meh Community Farmer Trainees. Volunteers should be ready to learn from and work beside the Community Farmer Trainees in a safe learning environment and community of support. Language barriers and cultural differences will exist, and we invite all volunteers who are respectful and supportive of Trainees’ learning process and differences.
As space is limited, make sure to register before participating in this great event.
