The first seeds have been planted to create a community garden at the Beloved Community tiny home village in Globeville. Tiny Home Village Creates Community Garden
Colorado Village Collaborative, the operator of tiny home villages and safe outdoors spaces in Denver, collaborated with Lowe’s Hometowns endeavor that works to help communities with various projects.
“It’s been going really fast. We’ve even had some time where we can take it easy,” said Oscar Navarrette, the store manager of the Lowe’s at 10555 W. Colfax Ave. in Lakewood. “I enjoy helping the community and then helping other people when they’re having a hard time. It’s nice to help other people so that they can live a little bit better.”
The volunteers on Oct. 1 put together garden beds where they’ll be planting fruits and vegetables.
Jennifer Forker, the communications manager for CVC, said the residents of the tiny home village will decide how they divide up the garden beds.
In the future, CVC hopes to host some gardening classes with residents in the community as well as Denver Urban Gardens.
