The Bromwell School Garden gives our students and greater school community an opportunity to learn more about the life cycle of the food we eat. The garden is managed and maintained by parent volunteers with support from Denver Urban Gardens and Slow Food Denver. Our goal is to raise healthy food for our students and give them hands-on experience in the joys and challenges of gardening. Additionally, the garden provides organic produce, harvested by Bromwell students, to the school cafeteria through the Denver Public School’s Garden to Cafeteria program. We fund all of these garden activities through farmer’s markets featuring produce from the school garden and our always popular pumpkin sale in October.
The garden consists of six large plots dedicated to the school, four community plots for Denver Urban Gardens members, and six small plots for Bromwell families selected via lottery every spring. We also have a pumpkin patch and fruit tree orchard adjacent to the main garden. We’re always looking for additional helping hands – green thumbs not required!
