A collaborative think tank bringing private and public factions together in the interest of creating and growing a local economy through the promotion of local foods, Grow Local Colorado starts with its founding sponsors: the Living Earth Center, Transition Denver, the Mile High Business Alliance and Denver Botanic Gardens. But from there, it spreads to include every one of us. Anyone who's ever thought of growing backyard produce to sell at micro-markets or to restaurants, or just anyone who'd like to find that kind of food to buy and eat in the first place, will benefit from this group, which helps put gardeners in contact with projects and lists classes in sustainable growing practices. This is networking on a brave new level. From lowly grassroots, great ideas will grow.
