A Record Year for Growing and Giving

Gardeners set a record for vegetable donations in 2013 as part of the Plant a Row for the Hungry-Colorado campaign. We all know gardeners are a generous bunch, but this year area gardeners set a vegetable-donation record… 10,941 pounds–more than five tons of produce! The Plant a Row (PAR) campaign got off to a great […]

2012 Growing and Giving Gardening Report

The results are in for our 2012 Plant a Row for the Hungry campaign in the Denver metro area. When I stood in the pouring rain at Harvard Gulch Park handing out garden starter kits on May 19, I didn’t know what kind of gardening year 2012 would be. After a couple of good spring […]

Gardening for Good

Even though I was a panelist at a recent summit on food justice, I’m still shocked by the statistics on hunger in this country. Thirty-three million Americans, including 13 million children, live in households that experience hunger or the risk of hunger. It breaks my heart to know so many people, especially children, go hungry […]

Meet Katie Stagliano on Everyday Health

Even though we’ve never met, 13-year-old Katie Stagliano and I have a lot in common. We’re both bloggers for Lowe’s Creative Ideas Garden Grow Along, and we both volunteer our efforts to help feed the hungry in our communities. Katie’s Krops encourages kids across the country to start vegetable gardens to feed people in need […]

First Denver County Fair a Huge Success

Prize-winning beets like these were just part of fun at the first-ever Denver County Fair held July 28-31 at the National Western Complex.
