Now celebrating our 10th year of service, Growing Colorado Kids continues to enrich the lives of refugee youth. Since 2008, GCK has filled its mission to reduce hunger, improve nutrition, and provide experiential learning opportunities for refugee youth through organic farming.
Growing Colorado Kids has worked with scores of refugee youth for over a decade as they have attained important life skills while growing thousands of pounds of fresh, healthy produce for their families as well as for hungry people being served by Brighton Shares the Harvest and the SAME Café. It has been a very fast and most rewarding 10 years!
In the 2017 growing season, GCK served 20 refugee youth, who harvested 3,762 pounds of fresh naturally grown produce, shared 2,264 farm fresh duck and chicken eggs, gathered 16 pounds of farm fresh honey, and sent home 1,651 pounds of prepared food!
