Building Community and Feeding the Hungry
The Catholic Urban Farmers of Denver is working to increase availability of locally grown food while building community and restoring Catholic Culture. We produce organic food for donation to local food banks and member families. We also experiment with various irrigation and planting methods. Eventually, we hope to share what we learn to help others develop their own gardens.
St. Isidore the farmer is the patron saint of agriculture. He was a humble Spanish farm laborer in the 12th century. Legends relate that God sent angels to help him with his work, and miraculously multiplied the food he would hand out to the poor. We ask God through the intercession of St. Isidore to help us in our work and multiply the seed we plant.
