Climate-wise Farms:

We’ve been enthralled by climate-wise farming because it’s a ‘multi-solving’ climate solution. Regenerative farming methods sequester carbon from the atmosphere and clean our air. It’s also fully organic. Purchasing produce from a local farm also reduces carbon emissions from shipping and refrigeration. And, as you probably know, local food is always the best!

Monroe Organic Farms

One of the oldest organic farms in Colorado, dating back to 1936. With almost a century of experience with organic and sustainable farming, Monroe Organic Farms grow healthy, organic food while conserving and respecting the natural environment in which they work. They also provide educational experiences to those who are climate and nature-focused. In addition to farmers markets in Boulder, you can find their produce at the following locations in Denver: 6th & York, Colfax & Colorado Blvd, Ellsworth & Broadway, Forest & 23rd St, Monaco & Florida, and Yale & Broadway.

SustainEd Farms

They grow delicious local produce, but their main focus is educational experiences that revolve around sustainability. SustainEd Farms also provides locally grown food to communities and schools in need through donations, the Farm Share program, and student-run farm stands at school sites. They are located at the following address: 2255 Sheridan Blvd Unit C285, Edgewater, CO 80214

Sprout City Farms

Started in 2010 by a group of farmers, teachers, researchers, community members, and business leaders, Sprout City Farms has created a platform for health, education, ecological stewardship, food justice advocacy, and neighborhood resiliency. Their student body is incredibly diverse as well, with 42 countries represented. You can find their bike farm stand on Niagara St. near the Denver Green School buses Fridays 12:30 - 1:30 pm, from August 12 - October 28. Or support their work more directly by participating in a CSA program
