Feed Denver's Farms & Markets
The New American Program
Some of the first people displaced by disaster, war, and violence around the world are farmers. These farmers often find themselves relocated to urban areas without understanding the local language or culture but hoping for a better future.
After up to 20 years in a refugee camp in Nepal, these folks have been resettled in Denver. Feed Denver partners with local refugee services agencies to provide work experience training for recent refugee arrivals to Denver.
We provide American job aculturation while teaching urban farming skills. As with the immigrants of past centuries, these farmers are the future urban farmers of America. Learn more
There's something interesting happening between architects and farmers. From the Univerisity of Colorado at Denver Architecture Design/Build Class to Architecture for Humanity of Denver, the conversation about localizing food we've been having at Feed Denver has attracted the attention of the design and planning worlds.
