The Farmette at Denver JDS is a 1/4 acre educational farm that relies on volunteer power to maintain the gardens, care for our chickens and goats, harvest for the food bank and build community.
We offer education during the school day related to agriculture, sustainability and animal care. We offer afterschool enrichment classes in cooking, gardening and animal care. We run summer farm camps for kids all over southeast Denver. We offer volunteer opportunitties for adults, kids, families, students and seniors.
Examples of volunteer opportunities vary wildly from weeding, planting, harvesting, amending soil and composting to painting, construction, hoof trimming, feeding and caring for animals, make beautiful bouquets and more.
