ABOUT LARIMER UPROOTED
Larimer Uprooted is a rooftop urban farm that sits atop the Larimer Square Parking Garage, located in the heart of downtown Denver. Our mission is to educate ourselves and our community about urban farming. We invite you to come, visit the farm, and grow with us.
Two-thirds of the growing space is in vegetable and fruit production, while the remaining one third is filled with native, perennial plants reflective of the local, surrounding flora.
Interspersed among these beds are murals, tables to gather, garden beds for education, and places for community members to sit and convene.
Goals for this project:
- To produce food and ecosystem services – all while learning and sharing best growing practices to inspire others to create their own urban agriculture projects.
- To create a community space that not only serves as a point of gathering but also as a wild space where people can connect to the surrounding flora – a more wild space within the heart of the city.
- To educate and inspire others to learn about where their food comes from and how they can participate in the local Denver food system.
We are closed for the season, but we look forward to seeing you in the spring of 2020!
