Keep Westword Free

Tonight: Denver Yard Harvest kick-off event at Fuel Cafe

Denver Yard Harvest, a new urban farming initiative, is kicking off its cause at a fundraiser from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. tonight at Fuel Cafe. The non-profit group's goal is to harvest surplus fruits and vegetables from residential properties throughout town and distribute them to daycare facilities, homes for the elderly and community kitchens in need of healthier food options.

There will be food and drinks provided by Fuel, whose impressive seasonal menu features produce from its own urban farm, and representatives from Denver Yard Harvest will be on hand to answer questions.

The suggested donation is $5.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
