About Mountair Park Community Farm
After 3 solid years developing our model at the Denver Green School Community Farm, SCF is partnering with the City of Lakewood to create Mountair Park Community Farm in the Two Creeks Neighborhood of Lakewood. Mountair Park is located at 14th & Depew St., and the park area to be converted to farm (area totalling around 1.25 acres) lies along both a bike path and the light rail corridor serving the new W line.
This is the first big step since our 2010 inception in realizing our vision of creating a network of community farms throughout the city! Thanks so much to all the groups who responded to our RFP for a new site, to our partners over the last 4 years who helped us get here, to the City of Lakewood for their boundless energy & support, to our incredibly hard-working staff and board, and to our new community for their enthusiasm in helping us bring fresh food to the neighborhood!!
There’s so much potential for collaboration at our new site and we can’t wait to get started. We’ll be breaking ground in March, so stay tuned for news on 2014 programs & events, and fundraising to bring it all together!
